LCA Spring Seminar 2017, Thursday 4th May 2017

Information and presentations:

Stephensons Solicitors LLP: Ensuring Your Business is CQC Compliant 

Rachel Adamson, Partner 

How do you ensure that when you see the CQC report for the first time - and you have an extremely tight deadline for response - that you can make sure that where there are clear errors of fact you can challenge them effectively? Your name and business standing are the most important assets you have and you want to make sure that whatever goes into the public domain gives a fair and accurate picture. 

Stephensons Solicitors LLP will give you a Masterclass in how to deal with corrections properly and fully and to ensure that misleading and damaging information doesn't get into the public domain because of flaws in CQC's report-writing processes. 

Come and learn from the experts how to ensure that you get a fair crack of the CQC whip and that your views are heard and taken account of.  

The recent Judicial Review - (R ex p SSP Health Limited –v CQC) read here is an important one for care providers and CQC.   

The test case (ex p SSP Health Limited –v- CQC) represents an important step towards having those checks and balances manifestly operating in the inspection process. 

Presentation available on request, pleases email sarah.luton@lancashirecare.org.uk

 

Caresolve Finance: Understanding and Calculating the True Cost of Care 

Richard Shore, Finance Director & Ben Challinor, Consultancy Director

There will be practical exercises as well as a detailed run through of the issues. 

Providers have to have a different approach in the new world we are facing and Caresolve can help you with the evidence-base you need.
