ECCA welcomes increase in CQC Warning Notices
Caring Times, October 2013
The English Community Care Association, the largest representative body for care providers in England, has responded to the CQC report which identified a significant increase in the number of care providers who had been given warning notices by the CQC.
Professor Martin Green, Chief Executive of ECCA said:
“The vast majority of care services are providing high quality care for some of the most vulnerable citizens in our society and the fact that CQC warning notices have gone up by 43% is more of an indicator that finally the CQC has started to do its job after years of bureaucratic incompetence and poor quality inspections.”
“We welcome the fact that the new leadership team at the CQC is turning the organisation around and these failing services are not typical of the care sector and the fact that they have been identified and challenged by the regulator should give the public confidence that regulation is finally doing its job.”
