Delivering the highest possible levels of care is of paramount importance to everyone in the Blossom Home Care family.
Key to achieving this is working tirelessly to earn positive ratings with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) throughout the business.
Back in May we detailed how Blossom Home Care Durham passed their inspection with flying colours. Then in July, our Barnard Castle branch received their own Good CQC rating across the board.
Now we are very pleased to share that our very own Carri Walters – Blossom Home Care’s Franchise Manager, who will soon be helming a new franchise territory – has had her CQC accreditation approved.
This process normally takes up to 16 weeks, but Carri’s approval was rubber-stamped in just eight weeks – largely thanks to Blossom Home Care’s systems and experience.
“The reason the registration has come back so quickly was because of my background and experience,” explains Carri. “And because of the ties I already have with Blossom, the interviews were merged into one instead of having to complete two.
“Now that the CQC have an idea of the Blossom brand, they are aware of our systems, which will make it a lot easier for them when it comes to inspecting and making decisions on our documentation, policies and more.”
In her role as Franchise Manager, Carri would normally support franchisees in recruiting a Registered Manager, as well as going through their registration and training process – all of which helps prepare them for their CQC interviews.
However, it’s a little different this time around for Carri as she prepares for the opening of her own franchise territory!
“We’re really looking forward to our launch in Harrogate and Ripon in just a couple of weeks. We are all set and waiting to hit the ground running; networking is underway, we’re meeting new people, and getting excited when an enquiry comes in, or a candidate calls for more information on a job role… we can’t wait to get going!”
Best of luck to Carri, co-franchisee Darren, and all the team for the opening and beyond!
