Care providers in Guernsey that are not currently regulated, could have to start following a framework of rules if passed by the States.
Some professionals, such as doctors, dentists and nurses are already regulated, but others like agency staff, residential support workers and complimentary therapists are not.
The proposals are designed to ensure that they:
- Protect citizens, residents and visitors
- Are appropriate, proportionate and cost effective
- Are open, transparent and understandable to all
- Are focused on the needs of small island communities
- Are evidence-based
- Promote equality
