Winter 2018 | Guidance for Care Homes

Following its report on the state of the care home market last November, the Competition and Markets Authority will be taking further steps to improve consumer confidence in care home provision.

The first of these actions will be an enforcement statement, expected early 2018, that will set out the circumstances of when charges can be made after the death of a resident. This statement is issued to tackle the practice by some providers of charging for a room for up to four weeks after death and/or seeking to recover additional fees.

If you are a care home provider, look out for further information on our website and twitter as you will be expected to amend your contracts to bring them into line with the new guidance.
