CQC emphasises need to offer unrestricted care home visits

CQC has outlined its expectation that care homes in England will follow government guidance on visiting – which is now unrestricted, following new guidance issued at the end of January.

CQC says that if providers are not able to allow unrestricted visits, they should speak with their CQC inspector as soon as possible.

Since 1 December 2021, 189 services have been reported to the CQC, of which 82 were allegations of blanket bans.
