Residential Homes - standards of care

Thank you for your email about standards of care in residential homes

This is a subject about which I have concerned for many years.

Both as a result of constituency cases and as a Minister, I was involved in establishing the new arrangements for CQC inspections – which are a very significant improvement on the previous situation.

However, I recognise that there is more to be done, and I shall certainly support further investigation of this issue.
