RNHA support for new quality rating system

The RNHA supports the introduction of a new quality rating system for care homes provided that it has the confidence of care providers and service users and accurately reflects individual care homes' performance against a set of agreed criteria.  Commenting on recommendations from the Nuffield Trust, RNHA chief executive officer Frank Ursell said he and his nursing home colleagues broadly endorsed the Trust's objectives and welcomed its suggestion that care providers should be closely involved in developing a new scheme and that the administrative and financial burdens upon them should be kept to a minimum.  Click here for further information.  Click here for a copy of the Nuffield Trust report.
