How much is your registration certificate worth?

Think about how much your care business is worth.

Now think how much your care business would be worth without your registration – your license to care.  Much less isn’t it?

The risk of losing your registration or the possibility of enforcement action by the Regulator should be included in your Business Continuity Plan. But how can these risks be mitigated? One way is to ensure that your registration is never under threat.

Here’s one care provider’s story:

This care provider runs a home care agency and has a track record of minor non-compliances.  Its approach was to use the Regulator as a consultant and to respond to the inspection report requirements.  Then the regulator got tough. The care provider was rated as inadequate by the CQC and placed in special measures.

This enforced a deadline of 12 months for the care provider to achieve and maintain compliance. Now it sought expert help.

After a year and many thousands of pounds spent on professional fees and training the service was taken out of special measures. It estimates the lost income from the embargo placed on them by Commissioners to have cost them many hundreds of thousands of pounds.

But, it need not have been this way. A much smaller investment in preventative measures would have assessed the level of compliance and identified issues BEFORE the Service Regulator did, avoiding special measure.
