In March 2013 the Code of Conduct for Healthcare Support Workers and Adult Social Care Workers was published. In the health
sector, the intended audience for the Code of Conduct was healthcare support
workers who report to nurses and midwives.
Skills for Health has received
consistent anecdotal feedback that the Code of Conduct actually applies much
more broadly in the health sector and could apply to all roles that are patient
facing and are not already covered by other Codes of Conduct.
An online consultation is open to test this from 1 August until 31 October 2014
Please access it via the Skills for Health website
The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete.
