Health watchdog announces plans to inspect home help agencies

22 Nov 11 - 10:48AM  | Social Care/Work

In 2012, hundreds of home help agencies will be inspected by the Care Quality Commission.

The move has been confirmed at a time when concerns about the abuse of vulnerable elderly people are mounting.

In response to this, the Care Quality Commission has pledged to go into patients' homes to see if they are being looked after properly.

Added to this, the watchdog confirmed that it will carry out unannounced visits to the providers' offices.

Paul Burstow, the care services minister, remarked: "The Care Qaulity Ccommision's programme of unannounced inspections for home care providers is part of a key coalition government policy of shining a light on poor care and rooting out bad practice.

"The lessons are already being learned from similar inspections in hospitals and care homes."

He added that the government is determined to ensure that everyone should get the best possible care, "whether they are in hospital, a care home or their own home".
