First issue of Hempsons’ Social Care Newsbrief available now

Welcome to the first issue of Hempsons’ Social Care Newsbrief, a round-up of some of the hot legal topics in the social care sector.

In this issue, Fiona Easton-Lawrence and Stephen Evans explore best practice for care home providers when it comes to dealing with the Court of Protection, and Philippa Doyle enlightens us on the ‘dark art’ of the factual accuracy response when challenging CQC inspection reports.

We also touch upon the impact of Brexit in the context of the National Living Wage, and offer up some top tips to consider when buying or selling a care home.

Our Social Care Advice Line launched earlier in the year and we are now planning to hold Social Care Regulatory seminars in the New Year in order to provide further support to social care providers.
