As a care provider, Compliance is at the forefront of your thinking. The regulations that came into force on 1st April 2015 introduced many new ways of working, and guidelines for the Health and Social Care sector.
These guidelines can be at best overwhelming to most care home managers where there day to day focus is, quite rightly, the quality of care their service users receive. However a care home can be providing the best care in the world, but unless they have the paper work, and the audit trail, to prove it the inspectorate can and will take action against them, which in extreme cases can include shutting the service down.
This is where GMS can help. GMS consultants will visit you to carry out an assessment of your service in line with the guidelines and will provide you with a report detailing the outcomes and whether, according to the guidelines, your service is compliant or not. If there are any areas you are not compliant in, we can help you meet the standards required.
