ECCA Responds To House Of Lords Ruling

The English Community Care Association (ECCA), the leading representative body for independent care homes, has responded to the House of Lords ruling on human rights for older people. Martin Green, Chief Executive of ECCA, says:

“The values and practice of human rights legislation are enshrined in the Care Standards Act and are the basis on which all care providers deliver their services.  We are pleased that the House of Lords has recognised this in its judgement and has not placed an unnecessary burden on a sector whose energy should be directed at delivering care rather than complying with more regulation”.
