Mon 24/06/2019 - CQC Abuse Reports

Today we have made a Freedom of Information request to the CQC, re their publicity drive to justify their existance post the latest abuse scandal in a care home they rated good. Whorlton Hall. Our experience is that most abuse happens in care homes rated good by the CQC.We have asked for copies of all CQC inspection reports which tell the public that there has been abuse alligations brought to the attention of CQC, CQC need to provide me with the 67,000 inspection reports informing the public of these alligations.

Wed 12/06/2019 - Response to Oxfam Inquiry

Read our response to the inquiry into Oxfam.... I fear that abuse is increasingly being thought of in terms of poor governance, procedural shortfalls, quality assurance flaws or an oversight that can be righted by tick lists or safeguarding. The inquiry report is mired in this terminology....

Mon 10/06/2019 - Parkview, my reply to CQC

.....The above failings being described as merely poor governance is incredible: even if you ignored all the concerns that were known to you via safeguarding, Compassion in care reports, family’s concerns, you can hardly justify ignoring your own inspection reports. If WD passes your criteria for Fit and proper persons, then your standards are not only flawed but downright dangerous.

 

Tue 28/05/2019 - Whorlton Hall BBC Panorama

I only have two criticisms of the Panorama programme which I must make clear are directed at the BBC editorial guidelines and not at anyone at Panorama who all do an amazing job given the constrictions on journalism today....

Fri 17/05/2019 - BBC You and Yours (Roseland Court)

Today I did an interview for BBC radio 4 "You and Yours" programme on abuse at Roseland Court care home in cornwall. I did not have time to say everything on the programme so this is my formal response to the case.

Firstly I note this home was rated good by the CQC at the time the abuse took place, no surpise there as most homes we recieve concerns about are also rated good by the CQC.
