Care England calls for right of appeal

Care England has demanded rights of appeal for care homes in responding to the CQC consultation on the new methodology for inspecting and rating residential care from October 2014.

Professor Martin Green, chief executive of Care England, said: “We appreciate the new culture of provider engagement and coproduction which is running alongside this consultation and the return of quality ratings is something the sector greatly welcomes. We look forward to working through matters of detail with CQC.

“The link between the fundamental standards and the ratings needs careful explanation and we regret that there is no right of appeal for providers against CQC judgements. As judgements, in one form or another, pervade the entire ratings system, we believe that grounds for appeal/review which are designed to deliberately exclude them are incomplete.”
