Care England launches judicial review

Provider representative body Care England, in the face of opposition from Essex Council, is proceeding to judicial review of the fee rates Essex pays to independent care home providers.

The judicial review brought by Care England seeks to challenge the lawfulness of the Council’s fee setting decision in respect of the ‘old contract’ and its refusal to review the rates under the ‘new contract’.

Care England believes the Council’s actions to date to be a breach of its responsibilities under the Care Act 2014.

Care England chief executive Professor Martin Green said the association was deeply concerned about the Council’s conduct towards the care home market within Essex and as a result, the sustainability of that market.

“This is an important challenge in support of providers in Essex and those new and existing residents receiving care,” said Prof. Green.
