ECCA Comment On Castlebeck Scandal

June 1, 2011 | By | 1 Reply More



The English Community Care Association (ECCA), the leading representative body for independent care providers, has responded to last night’s Panorama programme, which showed scenes of totally unacceptable abuse.

Martin Green, Chief Executive of ECCA, says:

“There is absolutely no excuse for the abuse of vulnerable people and Panorama had messages for every part of the care system. Care providers, staff and regulators must all work together to ensure that services are of a high quality and free from abuse”.

Martin Green continues:

“Last night’s programme will have undermined the confidence of the public in care services and will be of great concern to the majority of care staff who provide high quality services. I hope that the Panorama programme will start a debate about how we can improve the provision, commissioning and regulation of care services.”

  1. I think we need to ask who is regulating the regulators for this to have occurred? By that I mean the internal monitoring and reports that the inhouse team should use to monitor the patients satisfaction, health and safety, staff training which should pick up on attitiudes etc…and CQC reports and investigation measures.
    I aplaud Martin Green for standing up and stating that Ecca had concerns over the robustnes and leadership at CQC before this was reported.The regulators must admit a serious failing at this point and identify changes to rectify non responsiveness to complaints.
