New care inspector position to be created

by professorbillwinlow on 25 March, 2013

According to yesterday’s Sunday Telegraph, Norman Lamb, the Liberal Democrat health minister, has said the government will create a post of chief inspector of social care aimed at exposing unacceptable care where it is found. The appointment will come in alongside a proposed new “rating” system for care providers – who will be ranked “excellent”, “adequate” or “poor”. Mr Lamb said: “The chief inspector’s role will be very powerful when combined with this new ratings system. The idea is it will be a very high-profile public role, very much on the side of patients.”
