23/04/2012

The Care Quality Commission is being criticised for failing to take sufficient action after undercover filming showed an 80-year-old woman being slapped by a care worker. Jane Worroll secretly filmed her mother's room in Ash Court, London. Prior to the assault, the CQC had rated the home as "excellent" . The footage will be shown on the BBC's Panorama programme tonight.
