According a recent article provided by the BBC certain care homes that reach the standards essential for the type of care expected by the care regulator!

Will receive ” Premium Fees ” for care in their homes.

As the ” The Care Quality Commission ” {CQC} stopped issuing its own ratings in 2010 and homes are not reaching this essential standard some have taken to awarding themselves their 5 star-ratings by opting to carry-out their own ratings provided by their contracted ratings companies and consultants.

This allows these homes to show they are rated to provide essential standards and at the same time reach higher fees, leaving the elderly and vulnerable unable to know whether this home is up to standard.
