Thu 05/10/2017 - BBC RADIO KENT

Yesterday morning I spoke on BBC Radio Kent on the issue of CCTV, we have a very clear stance on this subject based on the evidence. I appeared with Jayne Connery who campaigns for CCTV.

..." You state that “The Government is committed to ensuring that Whistle-blowers are supported and protected” I would pass that message to the 47 Whistle-blowers who contacted CQC with concerns and had their names given by CQC to their employers, only it would be adding insult to injury.

Wed 23/08/2017 - HC1 and Bupa

The HC1 acquisition of a number of BUPA care homes will make HC1 the largest Care Home chain.

Our Tales of the Un-inspected on these homes make grim reading.. When Southern Cross had stripped all assets and made enough profits and fled before the company finally went bust.
