Care Homes & the Care Quality Commission
Blackfords LLP is regularly instructed by Registered Providers and Registered Managers to provide assistance and guidance in relation to matters before the criminal courts and the Care Standards Tribunal.
We are able to provide assistance at all stages, including guidance on policies and procedures following Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspections.
We are able to provide assistance in Coroner’s Inquests where care homes/providers are an interested party and have experience of liaising with insurance companies where necessary.
Blackfords LLP has been instructed in a number of high profile cases in this area, including the case of SHDC v A, where the accused company faced allegations relating to the unsatisfactory provision of care which resulted in the deaths of three residents.
Please speak with our key contacts for assistance with any of these issues.
