The Care Certificate assesses the fundamental skills, knowledge and behaviours that are required to provide safe, effective and compassionate care. The Care Certificate is awarded to staff in healthcare settings who can demonstrate they meet each of the 15 Care Certificate Standards.
We have added an additional 16th standard which covers Vital Signs.
