CMA consults on consumer law advice for care homes


Posted on June 1st, by geoff in Caring Times. Comments Off on CMA consults on consumer law advice for care homes

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has launched a public consultation on draft consumer law advice for care homes for elderly people.

Many of the consumer protection issues covered in the draft advice were highlighted during the CMA’s year-long market study into how well the care homes sector was working.

The study identified concerns that some care homes may be treating residents unfairly and potentially infringing consumer law.

Copies of the draft advice and consultation document can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/care-homes-for-the-elderly-draft-consumer-law-advice?=0

The deadline for responses is 12 July.
