There is a standard published by the HSCIC under the Health and Social Care Act that means all local authorities dealing with adult social care have to comply with the toolkit. See http://www.hscic.gov.uk/media/18132/008652015isn/pdf/008652015isn.pdf.
So the question is do these services fall under this remit?
The toolkit also has implications for reporting information security and cyber security incidents, so it's not just a compliance issue.
