CQC analysis shows how people with multiple conditions fall through health and care gaps
Responding to the CQC’s annual assessment of the state of health and social care, The Richmond Group is urging the Health and Social Care Secretary to ensure the next wave of CQC local system reviews focuses on people with multiple conditions.
The Richmond Group of Charities and 17 other signatories have written to Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock, unanimously asking the Government to include a focused NHS Bill in the next Queen’s Speech.
We are delighted to announce that Liam O’Toole, Chief Executive of Versus Arthritis, will become the new Chair of the Richmond Group of Charities from September. Liam is taking over from Chris Askew, who’s two-year term in the post has come to an end.
