Resuming inspections after lockdown is lifted

Based in Brighton and working across the UK, RDB Star Rating Ltd are an independent care home inspection body, providing thorough and comprehensive examinations to care facilities across the country. Since our founding in 1997, we've established ourselves as a benchmarking scheme in the care sector and helped countless facilities to reach an outstanding rating. 

We operate separately yet seamlessly alongside the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to offer a second opinion annually, as opposed to every 3-5 years by the CQC. Our inspection takes between 2-5 days and we assess over 200 care standards by interviewing staff, residents and management whilst reviewing existing policies within the home. Our benchmarking scheme is designed around factors that affect the lives of residents and helps monitor standards within the care sector: giving recognition to those who deliver outstanding levels of care day in and out.

We'd like to assure our clients, that as lockdown lifts and routine appointments resume, every single one of our inspectors will be in full compliance of government and industry guidelines to ensure the safety of both you and your colleagues. We understand that the elderly residents within your home are the most vulnerable to COVID-19, so we'll be working to strict standards to ensure the safety and quality of our inspections do not falter.

We're proud to be progressively improving the quality of care delivered to vulnerable people and believe that each inspection is a step further to transforming how care is delivered in the UK.
