All Wales Guidelines for Delegation

We have worked with Heath Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW) to update the All Wales Guidelines for Delegation. As per the Welsh Government’s commitment to integrate health and social care work further, in line with ‘A Healthier Wales’, the guidelines should also be made available to the social care sector.

The guidelines provide a guide for social care managers in dealing with the delegation of tasks by health staff to social care workers and to ensure that the worker is competent to undertake that specific task. The guidelines also provide workers with some directions in terms of the kind of support they can expect before and during the time that a task has been delegated to them.
