We are closing the help-line for the month of June in order to complete our work on Ednas Law. This is the first and only time we have ever closed the help-line but in order to truly help people we need to complete work on Edna's Law. This work has to be a priority because Ednas Law will ensure people are protected in the first place.

Compassion In Care has to expose the truth about CQC yet again.

The below story was published some weeks ago and portrays CQC as the concerned watchdog who disclose the worst performing care companies.

Tue 10/04/2018 - Parcel Delivery Scam

Please alert elderly relatives, friends and neighbours about this scam.
Someone calls at your house with a parcel to deliver, they say there is a delivery fee of a few pounds and they can only accept card payments. They take your card details and people have had thousands taken from their accounts. Never pay for a parcel. This is a scam and should be reported to the police immediately.

.....Last night I watched the first episode of the BBC series three, Hospital. A programme which was widely covered in the media. One of the main themes of this coverage related to Mavis an elderly lady who was occupying a hospital bed needlessly due to no care home being available. The Media highlighted the story of Mavis finding a care home and leaving the hospital as “Heart-warming”.

Mon 26/03/2018 - Same Old New Home

CQC continue to register homes as new. Grenville care home was listed today on the CQC website as a home rated inadequate. However we discovered that its alleged old owner was in fact the same owner. At the time grenville was archived and re-registered as new it was failing to meet the standards. CQC maintain they do not register providers with a past history of poor care and yet that is exactly what they have been doing and continue to do in spite of our earlier reports exposing this issue,

Wed 21/03/2018 - Same Old CQC

Two Care Homes, with the same address owned by the same company yet re registered to an alleged new provider. The public would enter the name of this home on the CQC website search and only the new version would show up. This home was inadequate when CQC archived its history and yet CQC say they do not register providers with a bad history.
This home is currently rated inadequate when inspected but crucially in the time in between these inspections the CQC website informed the public that the home has not yet been inspected but is likely to be good.
