Scenario: A number of assignments were undertaken with 100% success rate spanning care homes with and without nursing. Homes had care quality issues which resulted in suspensions, almost always combined with “institutional abuse” safeguarding alerts (very often the highest level for a home). Often such situations present a risk of enforcement from CQC Counties covered include: West Sussex, East Sussex, Kent (East and West), Surrey (including Croydon and Kingston), Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Leicestershire (County only), Essex, Nottingham (City and County), Sheffield and Lancashire.
Outcome: 100% success rate in lifting suspensions on admissions and institutional safeguarding alerts. The time taken varies from county to county, and is linked to provider reputation in the locality/nationally. Typical timelines in the past two years have been 2-3 months for homes requiring improvements across “all areas”.
