LGA responds to CQC report on residential detox clinics

Cllr Izzi Seccombe, Chairman of the Local Government Association's Community Wellbeing Board, responded to a report by the Care Quality Commission on residential detox clinics 

“While the findings of this latest CQC report relate to a very small proportion of people in treatment, it raises serious concerns around basic safety and fundamental standards of service that councils as commissioners and people receiving treatment have a right to expect.

“Councils want to see providers have rigorous safeguarding procedures in place and ensure high quality training of staff, and it is right to inspect and regulate the market in this way.

“This report should be a wake-up call to those providers who are not meeting the required safety standards and to deliver urgent improvements.”
