CSCI gets tough with poor providers

The Commission for Social Care Inspection is cracking down on poor providers through new enforcement teams in its seven regions, <A href=" the regulator announced yesterday.

The teams aim to improve the speed, quality and consistency of CSCI’s statutory enforcement work, under which it can instruct providers to take action to improve services and impose conditions on their registration or even cancel it.

CSCI admits that enforcement notices used now can take too long to produce, may not be robust and some require substantial review by its legal team.

The teams are part of a plan to toughen its enforcement approach, decided at a commission meeting on Wednesday.
