The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is now the lead inspection and enforcement body for safety and quality of treatment and care involving clients of registered CQC providers. Such cases are sensitive, time consuming and frequently attract media interest.

Keoghs’ specialist lawyers can help guide care providers through the process. Our approach ensures that cases are handled every step of the way by experienced care sector lawyers. We understand the importance of setting an early strategy and working closely with the provider, experts, regulators, insurers and civil lawyers to help achieve the best outcome.
