14 August 2013

We are delighted to have today been revealed as England’s leading homecare provider in a report from the UK’s leading healthcare information specialist, Laing & Buisson.

The report, Laing & Buisson’s Care Compliance Monitor, includes headline data from Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection reports and presents a digested view of providers’ performance.

The resulting league table shows the percentage of inspected branches which are fully compliant with CQC’s core standards covering care, safeguarding, staffing, management and respect for service users. Home Instead, which achieved the number one position, scored 97.8 per cent.

The information specialist’s Care Compliance Monitor for homecare will be updated every quarter. Laing & Buisson say that the monitor tool fills the void left when the CQC ended the star rating scheme in 2012.

Commenting on our performance, Trevor Brocklebank said, “We are totally focused on providing the highest quality of care for our clients. The work we do assures the safety and wellbeing of our clients and brings peace of mind to their families.

“It is gratifying to see this recognised by a leading industry organisation in this analysis of CQC performance.

“Our number one position bears testament to the dedication, commitment and hard work of our care teams across the country who strive on a daily basis to improve the lives of the elderly, assisting us to achieve our mission of changing the face of ageing.

”This latest accolade confirms that we are well on our way to becoming the UK’s most admired care company.”
