CQC Advisers Removed from Inspections


Almost 40 care homes are to be reinspected following the discovery that three advisers had provided duplicate material for inspection reports.

The three individuals, none of whom were CQC inspectors, have been removed from inspection activity following the revelations.

Kate Terroni, Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care at the Care Quality Commission, (pictured) said: We have investigated an issue relating to duplicate material used by two experts by experience (ExE) and one specialist adviser (Spa) in a number of CQC inspection reports.

As soon as we became aware of these issues the individuals concerned were immediately removed from inspection activity.
