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.

We are also experienced in dealing with a large number of care sector inquests where the coroner will investigate the cause of death to make a decision on whether to issue a prevention of future death report.

Keoghs’ national care team brings a cross-disciplinary approach to the handling of allegations made against industry members and, through anecdotal experience, is able to advise on how serious issues might be avoided in the future.

We are contactable 24/7, 365 days a year on 0800 410 1681, and can attend site at short notice, ensuring we are on scene at the most vital time following an incident.
