The UK Homecare Association (UKHCA) has today launched a revised Code of Practice, which all care providing members of UKHCA must agree to abide by. The Code of Practice has been a core benefit of UKHCA membership since 1991, acting as a signal to members of the public, employees and others in the sector of UKHCA members’ commitment to providing quality care.
The previous version of the Code of Practice had been in place since 2007. With many changes having taken place since that time the UKHCA undertook a comprehensive review of the Code over the past 12 months. Developed with input from members, including a membership wide consultation last autumn, the new Code has been substantially updated and simplified.
