REC reaction on CQCs report on care homes in England

REC reaction on CQCs report on care homes in England
 
Today, the Care Quality Commission has published a report on the standard of services in care homes throughout England.
 
Commenting on the report, Peter Cullimore, Chair of REC Nursing and Social Care, said: "We welcome the publication of today's report by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Unfortunately, we are disappointed that no emphasis was put on the impact of existing and likely future budgetary constraints on the delivery of front line services.
 
Current budgetary limitations of local authorities mean fewer people receive the care they need and also the pay of carers is limited . It is extremely worrying that the report shows that the number of people in England receiving care in their own home has fallen by a fifth in the past eight years.
 
Peter Cullimore added: The previous regulatory body for care, Commission for Social Care Inspectorate, was focused on monitoring systems and processes and not outcomes. We welcome the CQC's recent statement that previous regulation focused on system, processes and policies, and that in future it will be regulated based on outcomes for people in terms of a quality experience for care.
 
The REC will continue to work closely with the CQC to promote high standards of care."
