Care England, a representative body for independent providers of adult social care, despite opposition from Essex Council, has obtained the Court’s permission to proceed with its Judicial Review proceedings against Essex County Council challenging the fee rates its pays to independent care home providers.

Professor Martin Green OBE Chief Executive for Care England says:

Care England is deeply concerned about the Council’s conduct towards the care home market within Essex and as a result, the sustainability of that market”.

The Judicial Review challenge brought by Care England seeks to challenge the lawfulness of the Council’s fee setting decision in respect of the Old Contract and its refusal to review the rates under the New Contract.  Care England believes the Council’s actions to date to be a breach of its responsibilities under the Care Act 2014.
