Andrew Healing, director of Routes Healthcare made this comment in relation to the article.
I am delighted that this debate is out in the open and I anticipate the government to move speedily towards a resolution. There needs to be a fundamental revision of the framework and the contracts that underpin the provision of care within social services. As a nation we need to be shouting from the rooftops that our care provision is the best in the world, sadly the mechanism in place is plain for all to see, a broken one.
In order to deliver on the best interests of our vulnerable we require more funding and stricter monitoring. As a care provider our objective is to provide the best care we can, for this reason we refuse to partner with councils on the basis of 15 minute visits.
