New CCTV guidance for care service providers

Published: 17 July 2018

The care inspectorate have published closed circuit television (CCTV) guidance, which sets out key considerations and our expectations.

The guidance takes account of the Health and Social Care Standards and the Data Protection Act 2018.

If you use, or are considering using, CCTV in your service, it is important that you read this guidance and follow it.

Please note that we do not require services to use CCTV, which is no substitute for effective staffing levels.

You can find the guidance here.
