This meeting is free of charge, thanks to the generosity of the Crossroads Care Home and PRC.

The meetings will focus on:

  • The Care Act – Commissioners from local authorities will speak on the market shaping elements of the Act, and how they are being interpreted locally.
  • What does an outcomes-based approach mean for you?
  • CQC – Speakers from CQC will discuss the new approaches to inspection and how your service can receive the top grading. New regulations for providers and registered managers came into effect on 1 April.
  • These include the fundamental standards, as well as requirements about the fitness of providers, managers and staff.
    Are you up to speed?

Meetings will allow enough time for Q&A with our speakers and time to spend with other providers and share your problems, issues and news.
