CQC calls for action to improve care for older people

Thu, 13 October 2011

Responding to a recent CQC Report which highlights the inadequate care of vulnerable elderly patients in one in five hospitals Jeremy Taylor, Chief Executive of National Voices, says:

“How often do we have to hear about the neglect of vulnerable elderly patients? How many reports will it take? Hospital chief executives must wake up and take responsibility. Where we don’t start seeing improvements we should start seeing resignations."
