Care Insurance

Recent reports have highlighted the growing number of care businesses in the UK that have received inadequate ratings from the Care Quality Commission (CQC). This news is concerning for both the residents who rely on these services and the businesses themselves. We understand the challenges faced by care businesses, particularly those struggling to meet CQC standards. We are committed to supporting these businesses by offering insurance policies tailored to their specific needs, as well as providing advice and resources to help them improve their services. Here are a couple of examples below.

We can help with alternative insurance

At Quality Care Group we have a team of experienced Brokers who specialise in providing insurance to care home businesses. This means that we understand the unique risks that care homes face and can tailor insurance packages to meet individual needs. For businesses that have received an "inadequate" rating from the CQC, Quality Care Group can provide insurance cover that is specifically designed to help them get back on track.

It's worth noting that the exact cover provided by Quality Care Group will depend on the individual needs and requirements of each care home business. As a broker, they can work with a range of insurers to find the right level of cover for each business.

Mock inspections

Quality Care Group can provide a mock Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection by conducting a thorough assessment of services against the CQC's Key Lines of Enquiry (KLOEs). This assessment would involve examining every aspect of the care provided by the business, including staff recruitment, training, and supervision, as well as the quality of care provided to clients.

The mock inspection would also review the safety and cleanliness of the facilities, the level of communication and engagement with clients and their families, and the effectiveness of the care provided. The results of this mock inspection would provide the business with a comprehensive understanding of where they stand in terms of CQC compliance and allow them to make any necessary changes to improve the quality of care provided to their clients.
