Eileen Chubb

CEO Compassion In Care





Everyday I am contacted by families who are concerned about the treatment of a relative in care and also by Whistle-blowers who report abuse to find the only action taken is against them.

Thu 07/01/2016 - Blowing the whistle on CQC

See todays issue of Private Eye for more shocking details of the care home scam that has allowed the worst care homes to continue unchecked. When the CQC state a home is new and has not been inspected they do not mean "new" as the public understand the word. Our work has proven yet again that the CQC can not be trusted to provide accurate or indeed honest information to the public, yet we are supposed to trust them to be a Whistle-blower Guardian. It seems to me that the very concept of Whistle-blower Guardian is best summed up by appointing the CQC to the role.
