Lords’ decision may affect registration of close care


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

Lester Aldridge solicitor and Caring Times columnist Peter Grose reports that the House of Lords has now decided not to allow an appeal from the Court of Appeal decision in Moore & Others v CST (the Alternative Futures case). “This gives added importance to my article in last month’s Caring Times (March 2006) confirming the effect of the Court of Appeal Judgment is to render it highly possible that a number of close care and assisted living schemes are in fact registerable as care homes,” said Mr Grose.
