Happy Christmas everyone
The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) are currently conducting a market study
to find out if people have experienced a consumer protection issue with a care home.
The CMA want to hear from you if you or your relatives feel you may have been treated
unfairly by a care or nursing home – this could be because you have concerns about
the fairness of the care home’s contract (terms and conditions) or because you think
the care home has behaved in an unfair or misleading way, before or after you moved
Whilst the CMA market study website states the closing date for submissions is Monday
16th January, they have confirmed they are happy to receive submissions after this
Please note this market study is being conducted by the CMA and if you wish to take
part or require further info, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. ________________________________________________
