Care Campaign for the Vulnerable to meet CQC Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care Kate Terroni next month to talk over our safety monitoring in communal areas in care homes campaign

30th May 2019

Founder and Director of Care Campaign For the Vulnerable will be meeting the CQC Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care next month to discuss over our commitment to see safety monitoring installed in every U.K. care home to deter poor care practice and to help bring families and providers answers to unexplained injuries occurring in care and nursing home settings.

Last week Matt Hancock MP the Social Care and Health Secretary told the Daily Express who supports our work: “I think this is something we need to look at and I can see the case.”

Newly installed CQC Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care, Kate Terroni, has come out against making CCTV a requirement in care homes. She said: “The need for the use of CCTV in a care setting should be an exception rather than a rule for all. The risk of breaches to an individual’s rights to dignity, privacy and respect must be considered. What is key here is that those who are in charge of running care homes have enough staff who are suitably skilled, trained, supported and valued to do their job well and to always meet the needs of those who rely on good care “

Care Campaign For the Vulnerable supporters were naturally frustrated with this statement after the support for safety monitoring in care homes is overwhelming. Writing a open letter to Kate Terroni https://www.carecampaignforthevulnerable.com/news/799/a-open-letter-to-kate-terroni-cqc-chief-inspector-of-adult-social-care/ we raised issues regarding the increase in care home failings and how safety monitoring in communal areas was now a required “care assist tool with care homes inviting us in who had adopted the technology in communal areas.

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is delighted to confirm a meeting has now been arranged with Ms Terroni and Director Jayne Connery next month at CQC at their London Headquarters.

British Actress Aimi Macdonald is Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Ambassador - raising public awareness for better, safer, transparent care within the care sector.

I am delighted to be invited as a Ambassador to assist in this wonderful campaign instigated by Jayne Connery regarding CCTV security in care homes throughout the UK. This, I feel, will benefit carers, staff, residents and their families in the event of any dispute. As a relative of someone suffering with Alzheimers disease I have been involved with care homes over the last ten years and I feel the knowledge I have can contribute to this very important initiative
