Update on independent review into regulation of Whorlton Hall

19 June 2019
  • Public

CQC has commissioned clinical psychologist Professor Glynis Murphy to undertake an independent review of its regulation of Whorlton Hall between 2015 and 2019.

The review will make recommendations for how CQC’s regulation of similar services can be improved, in the context of a raised level of risk of abuse and harm.

Professor Murphy is a professor of clinical psychology and disability at The Tizard Centre, University of Kent - a leading UK academic centre working in autism, learning disability and community care.

A separate independent review into how CQC dealt with concerns raised by Barry Stanley-Wilkinson in relation to the regulation of Whorlton Hall is being undertaken by David Noble QSO. That review will focus in particular on concerns raised about the draft report prepared in 2015, and how they were addressed through CQC’s internal processes.

The full terms of reference for both independent reviews are published here and the findings of the reviews will be presented at our public board meetings.
