HSC Professional

Stand: N30
HSC Professional (Consultancy) provides specialist consultancy support on regulatory matters to care homes and home care services. Consultant Dr Richard Fairburn owned and ran a nursing home, and set up and ran a domiciliary care service, over a period of twenty years from 1986 to 2006. He has provided consultancy advice and support to adult social care providers since 2000, also running seminars across the country on regulation and inspection since that time. As well as his older medical degree and BSc, he has a Bachelor`s law degree and a Masters in Human Rights and Public Law. Richard has also written editorial articles in, variously, This Caring Business, Healthcare Business, Caring UK, and Care Home Professional since 2000. HSC Professional is a research-based consultancy. Ongoing analysis of key aspects of the outcomes of hundreds of inspection reports feeds into the knowledge base that informs all aspects of the service, from compliance assessments to representations, from provider information returns to seminars. There is a fixed fee system for representations to draft inspection reports, requests for review of published ratings, and proposed enforcement (but NoPs on an hourly rate). Richard`s long experience and legal background lends itself to well-targeted and concisely-argued submissions, tuned to CQC policy and legally sound. Compliance assessments are available on a flexible basis. With the ever-increasing complexity of the requirements (with especial reference to NICE guidance) a `mock inspection` is not enough to safeguard the ratings at the next inspection. This package includes assessment of the `regulatory risk profile` from previous inspection reports as well as from the site visit and all documentation seen. It can be part compliance assessment and part training day on CQC inspection methodology. It also offers advice and support on any action plans (whether for submission to CQC or not) and provider information returns (again, whether already requested or for future reference). Richard Fairburn also runs regular series of seminars across the country on regulation and inspection and the evolving inspection methodology of CQC. Feedback from providers and registered managers attending these seminars attests to their informative content. Richard Fairburn is the only expert who runs such seminars on a country-wide basis. Guide leaflets on the services on offer are available at the stand. `Do visit my stand to discuss any issue of interest. Pick my brains - if I can`t answer the question I will look into it and get back to you as it is probably of interest to me as well as to you! I look forward to meeting you at the stand.`
