Care Quality Commission (CQC) -
This good practice guide aims to help minimise the impact on people, and their families and carers, in the event of a care home closing in response to poor care, an emergency or market exit. The guide has been developed following an event co-hosted by CQC and NHSE earlier this year to explore how unplanned care home closures are managed, learning from the experience of residents and families. At this event it was agreed that the system needs an agreed set of essential principles, underpinned by a framework of actions, to ensure the needs of people using services, their families and carers remain at the heart of the closure process.
