New powers for the Care Quality Commission.

 A system of special measures designed to improve failing care homes is to be extended after the process was introduced by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) a year ago at 11 failing hospital trusts.

 
The scheme will be introduced for care homes and home care agencies next year.
 
Lavinia Newman, Founder of ABDS and a business strategist comments:
“All 25,000 care homes in England are to be reviewed and rated, with those failing to make the grade at risk of being shut down. However, the system is not expected to start until April as the ratings regime it is based on will only be rolled out in the social care system from the autumn. This will give health and care services a rating of outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate.”
 
Nadra Ahmed, chairman of the National Care Association, said that anything that safeguarded vulnerable people "has got to be good".
 
She said care homes in special measures may no longer get residents placed in their care by the local authority, and as a result would lose additional funding and could face closure, in a way that does not happen to a hospital.
 
From April next year, those rated as inadequate face being put into special measures.
If they fail to improve care within a set time limit they could be closed down.
