National inspection groups vote to merge

Posted on March 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

The National Heads of Inspection & Registration (NHIR) and the National Nursing Homes Registration & Inspection Advisory Group (NNAG) have voted to merge, forming a new national group called Heads of Registration and Inspection National Group (HRING). Writing in Registered Homes & Services, (March 2000) NHIR chair Marion Witton said the aims of the new body would include covering all the areas of work that the Commission for Care Standards will regulate in the future. “The group will promote best practice and provide a two-way channel of communication between the Department of Health, the External Reference Group for the Commission and Heads of Inspection Units,” Mrs Witton said. “In addition, it will provide a mechanism to establish inter-regional working parties through the sub-groups, to provide the expertise for the speciality services.”
