The Excellence Award Expected to be Put on Hold

At the National Care Association's Annual Conference the Care Quality Commission chair Dame Jo Williams said that she saw no prospect of the Excellence Award scheme going ahead after it had received a 'universal thumbs down' by provider bodies and organisations such as the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services during the recent consultation exercise, but she stressed that the final decision would be made by the Minister.

National Care Association Chairman Nadra Ahmed OBE welcomed Dame Jo's speech and said today: 'I am extremely pleased with the new understanding we now have with the Care Quality Commission and we are determined to build on that for the benefit of the people we care for and our members.'
