Community Care and Health (Scotland) Act 2002

Section 8 – Amendment of 1968 Act: matters to be taken account of in assessment of needs

45.Section 8 replaces section 12A(1)(b) of the 1968 Act and adds two conditions into the existing process through which local authorities assess and provide services for adults in need of community care services. It requires local authorities after having assessed the needs of a person for community care services but before deciding what services to provide to the cared-for person to take into account, as far as is reasonable and practicable:

  • the care being provided by a carer; and

  • the views of both the carer and the cared-for person.
