We are specialist health and social care barristers and consultants with significant experience in dealing with social care regulators including the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and other regulators. 

Through this extensive experience we fully understand the significance of inspection reports and the impact these may have on the reputation of your business.

Inspections reports are often challengeable however, in order to maximise success in any appeal, time and specialist knowledge is of the essence; time due to the fact that the window for response is often very short and specialist knowledge to fully grasp the issues and to assemble a robust and clear response.

This is particularly important where inspection reports are inaccurate or presented unfairly.

There are a number of reasons why it is important to give serious consideration to challenging wrong, inaccurate and unfair inspection reports but principle amongst these are:

  1. A succession of non-compliant inspections can lead to enforcement action and regulatory sanctions; and
  2. The public will take published inspection reports are read and assume these are an accurate reflection of your care home or business.
