More explanation would have been helpful to people here so that we know which particular area you are asking this for. And why you are asking it for as well.
If it for your health and social care course at college 🙂 then you'll have to research this information yourself.
There's also different variations of the codes depending on what part of the UK you live in as the devolved governments has there own health minister which set's out things.




The Code of Practice for Social Care Workers is a list of statements that describe the standards of professional conduct and practice required of social care workers as they go about their daily work.
