Guiding principles for delegated healthcare activity
Together with the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and partners, Skills for Care has co-developed voluntary guiding principles to support person-centred, safe and effective delegation of healthcare activities to paid care workers and personal assistants. Delegation to social care workers isn’t new and has been happening for several years to enable people to have more choice and control, with an opportunity to provide a better experience of care. The principles are designed to be adapted locally to complement existing best practice and local protocols. We’ve also created supporting resources, videos and sample policies.
