  Independent consultants to the health and social care sector specialising in care home provision - SA Consulting and Interim Management  



New Care Home Providers

We can help new providers set up and run a care home, drawing on many years experience in the care industry. We always operate at the highest standard, and offer you guidance and support in all aspects of setting up your business in a way that is practical and down to earth. We work with you to ensure that you are able to develop the necessary skills and expertise.

We can help you with design and layout of your home, particularly important in dementia care, staff recruitment, policy and procedure development, Registered Manager support and mentorship and practical help with setting up internal systems to make the home run smoothly.

Of course, we will also guide you through the registration process with CQC to ensure that your application and interview are successful.

And if you are buying an existing home we can even assist you with the due diligence process to help you make an informed choice about the standard of the home you are buying.

Regulatory Support

One of the ways in which we assist established providers is by undertaking checks on their behalf against regulatory standards. The outcomes of these “mini inspections” can then be used to demonstrate compliance with the requirements placed on providers to regularly monitor and report on quality of service provision. Audits, interviews and mystery shopping can all be used to monitor, and demonstrate good quality assurance systems. We can also assist you with the completion of annual quality assurance questionnaires and preparations for announced inspections.


We can help you build those important relationships to create and maintain a strong and profitable business. These relationships may include commissioners, regulators, stakeholders and local communities.


We can also help you to develop and implement robust governance strategies and quality initiatives to ensure that your care home meets its obligations and operates in a safe and credible manner.

Quality Audits

We can assess how well your care home is meeting both your clients needs and expectations and your commissioners requirements by undertaking a detailed quality audit. This audit can be used as part of the evidence of your quality assurance systems. A detailed action plan will provide you with recommendations on how the quality of your service can be improved and we can work with you to address areas of particular concern.

Change management

Change can affect a care home for various reasons and the effects can sometimes be significant on both service users and staff. A change of ownership, change in client group or the re-development of services can all be stressful and provide a period of uncertainty. We can offer support specifically tailored to your business when change is imminent to help make any transition as smooth as possible.

Strategic and Operational planning

We can help you to effectively consider the strategic direction of your business and provide you with the tools you will need to develop plans and see them through. We offer support to help you with business planning, particularly when looking at new ventures. We can also help you to look at initiatives to maximize income and increase average weekly fees.

Planning applications

A well thought out and researched need case can make a significant difference to the success of a planning application. These detailed documents support planning applications for new care homes and include a competitor analysis and the establishment of need for a service.

Project management

Support can be provided for either, small scale service developments, or larger projects which involve multiple stakeholders. Assistance with team building, staff reviews, partnership working and the preparation of reports can also be provided and include action plans in response to Adult Protection issues, or complaints.

We are happy to discuss any of the above with you - so why not give us a call and see how we can help.
