Care home rating website launched

9th February 2012

NHS manager Emma Challans has set up an independent ratings website for care home in a drive to improve national standards.

She felt information provided by the Care Quality Commission’s registration system did not have the “sensitivity” people needed when deciding where to place an older relative.
