March has seen a big focus on the Fundamental Standards of Care for our Social Care team and we wanted to share the information with you to help you navigate your way through the standards.
Social care partner Philippa Doyle explains how to get the best outcome from CQC's new monitoring phone calls.
In an unprecedented decision a Judge in the Court of Protection proceedings P (Discharge of Party), Re, has discharged the mother of the person who is the subject of these proceedings.
The CQC has successfully prosecuted an acute Trust for failing to meet a fundamental standard of care. Whilst this is the latest criminal prosecution by the CQC for breach of fundamental standards, this case was the first in relation to failings in the standard of clinical care.
CQC announced after hours on Thursday 19 October, a start date for the Single Assessment Framework. We’ve known for a few weeks that providers in the south would be the first to experience the new approach, and CQC have now confirmed that will be with effect from 21 November 2023.
We are delighted to announce that we will be exhibiting at the Dementia, Care & Nursing Home Expo, on 15/16 September 2021 at Birmingham’s NEC. We invite you to join us for two days filled with business-defining content, training, and exhibitor demonstrations.
The CQC is changing the way it inspects and reports on services, but what are the evidence requirements for providers and what areas of the current system will remain the same?
The Covid 19 pandemic has seen the way many services operate change, with many face to face services going on-line and digital in a way never seen before. One of those changes is seen with the new CQC approach to inspection.
Throughout the pandemic, the CQC have kept their regulatory approach under review to recognise the changing pressures health and social care services find themselves under.
