Healthcare information specialist LaingBuisson produces a healthcare report every quarter where it documents the performance of more than 8,000 home care providers using data from the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the independent regulator of health and social care in England.
The report ranks home care providers according to the percentage of branches that have been inspected by the CQC and been rated as fully compliant with CQC standards.
Home Instead has held the number one position for national home care providers specializing in care for older adults, in every report published. Today’s results from the 2016 Q1 report prove once again that Home Instead’s quality of care is exemplary, with 97.9% of inspected branches fully compliant with CQC standards.
CEO Trevor Brocklebank was delighted with the latest news, and commenting on why he thinks the company has consistently performed so well, he said:
“We pride ourselves in having care standards that go above and beyond what is expected of us and that is why we are consistently ranked in No 1 position based on CQC inspections and were one of the first providers in the country to receive an Outstanding inspection report in CQC’s new regime of inspections”.
“It is our belief that everybody in the UK should have access to a consistently high standard of care and we pay a lot of attention to ensuring that we are living up to our values; improving home care standards for older people and making sure our care always passes the ‘mum test’.
“Being top of the league table isn’t simply about evidencing our quality of care but it is providing added peace of mind and reassurance to clients and their families that they are being supported by the leading provider in the field.”
The latest LaingBuisson report shows that Home Instead achieved the highest CQC compliance score of any national home care provider for the elderly (a provider with 50 or more branches). Home Instead has consistently held this number one position since the report was launched in July 2013- See more at: https://www.homeinstead.co.uk/490.do/top-of-the-table-for-home-instead-in-latest-laingbuisson-report
