Care Quality Commission
Reactive line provided to media: Four Seasons Health Care
We are fully aware of the developments with Four Seasons Health Care and remain in regular contact with them as we continue to monitor their position.
We are clear that all people using any adult social care service, as well as families and carers, need to have confidence that the provider will ensure good quality care which can be sustained into the future. Our Market Oversight regulatory responsibility is to advise local authorities if we believe that there will be likely service cessation as a result of likely business failure. We do not believe this to be the case at this time.
