In figures just released by analysis firm Laing and Buisson, Dimensions, the learning disability and autism support provider has achieved the highest CQC compliance rate of all large care providers (those with more than 30 homes) for people under 65.
The figures reveal that 98.8% of Dimensions’ 82 registered care homes were fully compliant with CQC inspection standards. What the figures don’t reveal is that all those so far inspected under the new regime have received a Good rating too.
Jackie Fletcher, Director of Quality and Compliance at Dimensions said, “This success is all the more significant when Dimensions’ progress over the last year and a half is taken into account. From a compliance rate of 87% in March 2014, when we were ranked 16th out of larger providers in our sector, we have risen up the rankings with each new set of figures.
“Topping the rankings is testament to the hard work, robust processes and commitment to the cause demonstrated across the organisation.”
