The Care Certificate was introduced in April 2015 and it is now the expectation of all those working as healthcare assistants and adult social care workers to undertake this learning as part of their induction programme. The Care Certificate was created as a result of the Cavendish Review which was published in July 2013. This review was part of the response to the Francis Inquiry into the failings of care at the Mid-Staffordshire NHS Trust. The Care Certificate applies across the health and social care sectors and can be portable between sectors and organisations.
There are 15 standards that make up the Care Certificate. The standards take account of: The Code of Conduct for Healthcare Support Workers and Adult Social Care Workers in England, The Social Care Commitment, which is the social care sector’s promise to provide people who need care and support with high-quality services, The Chief Nursing Officer for England’s ‘6Cs’. These are care, compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment.
