PLACE England 2015: Patient-Led Assessments of the Care Environment (HSCIC)

Summary

The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC)’s 2015 report of Patient-Led Assessments of the Care Environment (PLACE), covers assessments of healthcare premises in the NHS and the independent sector (in England). The inspection / assessment teams comprised at least 50% patients (known as patient assessors); hence the term “patient-led”.

These assessments focus on the care environment and non-clinical supporting services including cleanliness, food, hydration, privacy and dignity. The 2015 assessments are the first to include consideration of environments specifically relating to the care of people with dementia.
