Care values are needed in a health and social care setting as service users and providers need to be ensured about their safety. The need of values helps the quality of the carers so that they can provide the care that the service user will need. There are many rules that a service provider will need to uphold while working in a health and social care setting such as confidentiality, dignity, respect, privacy, non discrimination and self guarding.

The members of the care team should share confidential information when it is needed for the safe and effective care of an individual. 3. Information that is shared for the benefit of the community should be anonymised 4. An individual right to object to the sharing of confidential information about them should be respected. Privacy Privacy means when you have the right to be let alone, or freedom from the interference. As an care provider you must ensure that, the service user gives permission before accessing their documents. Dignity means when treating others with self-respect also ensuring that their self-esteem is kept up, as a service provider must ensure that behaviour and attitude can help overcome insecure feelings.
