Record Keeping Policy (April 2015)
The County Council expects a high standard of record keeping to be maintained at all times.
The purpose of this policy is to define record keeping requirements for all personnel involved in creating, maintaining, monitoring or contributing to social care records.
This policy applies to all paper and electronic social care records for adults including records created, held or maintained by individuals or commissioned services authorised to act on behalf of the County Council.
An integrated Clinical and Social Care Record Keeping policy has been developed for use by Gloucestershire County Council staff operating within integrated teams with Gloucestershire Care Services NHS Trust. County Council staff operating within these teams should refer to the integrated policy in the first instance. The integrated Clinical and Social Care Record Keeping policy is accessible from the download section on this page.
