Abstract

The Care Certificate, launched in England in 2015, safeguards patients by ensuring all new healthcare assistants (HCAs) undertake a structured educational programme so that they can provide appropriate, safe and high standards of care in clinical settings. This article describes a service evaluation that aimed to identify the effects of the Care Certificate on HCAs' confidence and ability to identify, and initiate management of, unwell patients independently.
