    Care Quality Commission praises hospices for outstanding ratings

    13.10.17 On the eve of World Hospice and Palliative Care Day, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has praised hospices in England as having the highest percentage of services rated “outstanding.” It says 25% of hospices are rated outstanding and a further 70% are rated good. In comparison, 6% of hospitals, 4% of GP practices and 2% of home care agencies, nursing and residential care homes are rated outstanding. The CQC found that hospice leaders and staff were committed to person-centred, compassionate care and support for service users and their families, as well as to developing strong relationships with other local services. This week is Hospice Care Week and World Hospice and Palliative Care Day takes place tomorrow (14 October). See the CQC’s report The State of Hospice Services in England 2014 to 2017, published today, HERE

    “Tens of thousands” of people miss out on council tax discount

    12.10.17 Tens of thousands of people who are entitled to a council tax discount because of “severe mental impairment” are missing out, including people with dementia, says research by Conditions involving an impairment of intellectual or social functioning, including Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s, qualify for the discount which can be worth £400 a year or more. To claim the discount, which applies in England, Scotland and Wales, a formal diagnosis is required along with a completed claim form obtainable from local authorities. John Wattis, Huddersfield University professor of psychiatry for older adults, criticised councils for not raising awareness among the people affected. He said: “Research by has shown a massive variation in the number claiming this entitlement in different council areas with as few as 10 or 11 residents claiming in some areas, but over 420 in other areas with equivalent populations."
