OLDER people living in Burton can look forward to improving standards of care thanks to new plans approved by council chiefs.

The plans, which will also see the signing by the county’s health partners of a ‘Care Quality Charter’, will stride to continuously improve standards of care across the county.

A zero tolerance approach to poor quality care will also mean that action is taken against those organisations that fall below the high standards expected.

Staffordshire County Council’s Cabinet lead for care Alan White said: “Everybody wants to be treated fairly and with dignity, and to have their voices and experiences heard, and this is what the new plans hope to achieve.

“The council is committed to improving quality of lives.”
