A continuation of the inadequacies of the CGC inspection system both in their practice and , when problems are found , lack of enforcement and prosecution under their present powers.
Latest " Report " used by the Daily Chuckle is , in fact , a combination of ongoing reports with the headlining issues made into said article.
A Mail investigation found the system was in such crisis that four in ten care homes fail inspections. Of the 5,300 sites the CQC has reported on this year, around 2,000 were found to be inadequate or in need of improvement.
Most CQC reports don't make it to the national press , a few picked up locally.
Thankfully , the " Good " reports far out number the ones we tend to get to read about ... regretably , good reports do not sell newspapers.
In any event , full marks to the Daily Chuckle for bringing this Issue to the attention of their readers.
Comments section makes interesting reading .... for once ... almost total agreement..... and hardly any mention of Trump or Brexit ... somewhat refreshing !
Said article deserved to be recorded on the forum .... thanks to Penny ... a tabloid's take on the current problems with certain care homes.
If it leads to something positive , the Daily Chuckle should be congratulated .... for once ?
