Abstract
  • This conference took place within the context of three related developments. Firstly, there was the wide-ranging debate about standard setting and the measurement of quality in public services. Secondly, there were the more specific concerns about standards of care in residential accommodation for the elderly, and thirdly, there was the passage of the Registered Homes Act 1984, which came into force on 1 January 1985. The first priority was seen by many to be the implementation of existing powers of registration and inspection more effectively, and that it was premature, at this stage, to think in terms of establishing a national accreditation agency.
