Caring Times, February 2013

ECCA has delivered a submission to the cabinet office in response to the Red Tape Challenge with particular reference to independent care homes.

Martin Green, Chief Executive of ECCA, said: “Regulation is vital to ensuring essential protections for individuals receiving care and support services. However, greater clarity is needed on how different parts of the care system work together in implementing regulation to stop duplication of effort.”

Martin continued: “We should not be wasting precious workforce and financial resources on duplicate form filling and disproportionate and inappropriate monitoring. We want smart regulation and implementation that directly benefits individuals in care homes and allows resources to be directed into delivering frontline care.”
