Monthly care plan audit by council | QCS

I work for a small family run Nursing Home where we are a preferred provider for our council. They are now saying that they will be visiting monthly to audit our care plans ( they are doing it for all). Do we have to accept this?

Monthly care plan audit by councilDear Tracey,

Thank you for your email. I think your question is extraordinary. I have never heard such a thing before.

Have they given any reason why they are planning on visiting every month?

Unless they have given a valid reason you need to look at your contract to ascertain what is said on this subject.

Whatever happens they can only monitor arrangements for the people they are funding.

I do need to have more information please. If you would like to speak to me on the telephone please call the office on 0333 405 33 33 option 2 and leave me a message.

Best wishes.
