Regulator hires ex-military and police officers in crackdown on failing care homes

Regulator hires ex-military and police officers in crackdown on failing care homes The NHS and care home regulator has employed former military and police officers to get tough in a crackdown on poor care standards.

Ian Trenholm, the chief executive of the Care Quality Commission, says he could take 31 NHS organisations and 163 care homes to court over safety concerns.

He took over the CQC in July and now wants to come down hard on failing adult social care companies and sub-standard branches of the health service.

Mr Trenholm revealed the 11 new additions to the team will review evidence and build cases against the ailing organisations - and more in the future. The Daily Mail
