Health and social care providers who are also registered as nurses or doctors often have to deal with a two-pronged attack from regulators because they may have to deal with criticisms from both the provider regulator, such as the CQC, as well as from professional regulators, such as the General Medical Council (GMC) or the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). There is also greater emphasis now on regulators sharing information between bodies. This means that provider regulators and professional regulators are likely to refer matters to each other where appropriate.
When dealing with any form of disciplinary procedure, things can get difficult and complicated. If you do have to deal with both a professional regulator alongside your provider regulator, Ridouts team of specialist lawyers can advise on both aspects as each is likely to impact on the other.
Ridouts can help you by:
They are saviours! They rescued my business – they are worth every penny!
You feel that you get both legal advice and consultancy, borne out of many years of dealing with regulators.
Caroline came back to me immediately with a high quality, considered response.
I was immediately impressed with Jenny’s knowledge in legal matters and how care homes work at a business level
I went to their symposium – it was a big investment of time – but it was wonderful – I learnt a lot and like the way they spoke – easy to understand, clear, friendly – I would definitely use them if I needed to – and would absolutely recommend them
I know for a fact that the CQC fear Ridouts – they know you are taking it seriously if you work with Ridouts.
I got through to Paul immediately and he told me what to do there and then; I didn’t realise how limited the Local Authority’s powers were.
A superlative job – Thank You seems insufficient.
