Care England, the largest representative body for independent providers of adult social care, has announced a partnership with BKR Care Consultancy.
BKR assists care providers when working with their commissioning and regulatory authorities.
It supports them with mock inspections, risk assessments, infection control, governance and quality assurance.
Professor Martin Green (pictured), chief executive of Care England, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with BKR to bring more care providers into membership of Care England. This partnership will also offer care providers access to BKRCC services which in turn will support them at this difficult time”.
Managing director Bhavna Keane-Rao is a former inspector and senior manager at the CQC. As a senior manager, she specialised in working with large corporate health and social care providers in developing standards of quality and safety in care.
Commenting on the partnership, she said: “We are absolutely thrilled to work with Care England in this unique partnership. We look forward to working with new and existing membership as we deal with current challenges.”
