    The aim is to establish a full set of NICE quality standards and guidance in order to improve the quality of social care.

    Some of the potential NICE standards for discussion in the consultation include:

    • falls
    • deprivation of liberty safeguards
    • medicines management in home-based settings

    The role of NICE in driving up the quality of social care is outlined in The Caring for our Future White Paper.

    The 12 week consultation ends on 26 April 2013.

    Care and Support Minister, Norman Lamb said:

    Improving the standard and quality of care and support services is one of our top priorities. From April of next year, NICE will join us in this challenge and take on an important role in driving up the quality of care.

    That is why we have started a consultation in which everyone can have their say on which topics NICE should focus on for future work. So please do get involved.
