CQC - Essential Standards Compliance
Helping Care Providers meet legal requirements & raise standards in care
It is our passion to make life easier for managers and providers by understanding exactly what the Care Quality Commission require you to do, and by developing methods to quickly, and cost effectively, help you be compliant.
The CQC's Essential Standards have 28 outcomes - 16 of these are core. These are the ones that are going to be mostly inspected and relate to the quality and safety of your home or facility and service users.
Person-Centred Care Plans, tailored and personalised for your Care Organisation and People
Our Care Plans are person-centred and tailored for the type of service being provided (residential, nursing, domicillary, mental health). They are designed to help you achieve the key care outcomes including respecting and involving the people you care for, providing proper care & welfare services, gaining consent to care, nutritional needs, cooperating with and safeguarding people in your care, management of medicines and equipment safety, availability and suitability.
GR Care's full service to guide & support your Care Quality Commission Requirements
We work with many care organisations providing expertise, friendly support and well thought out products. We help to achieve regulatory requirements, manage and mitigate risk and at the same time improve the standards for the people being cared for.
Our role is to provide proprietors and managers, with professional support to address immediate compliance challenges, put in place key building blocks for new Care Organisations, or to work alongside management to develop and deliver longer term improvement plans for established businesses. We also provide ongoing support to Providers of Care.

the passion behind GR Care
“I have been in Social Care for over 20 years and began caring for the elderly following a career in the travel industry.
After learning about care in my own family's established care business, I set up GR Care Consultancy Ltd in 2008. This gives me the opportunity to support care providers with up to date legislation and documentation, as I understand the pressures of management within care settings.
The GR Care team's belief is that, if providers have the right level of support, they can then get on with running their business to ensure the care delivered is of an excellent standard.
I am passionate about caring for vulnerable people and we must all play our role to ensure their wellbeing and happiness.”
