Testimonials

“‘We have been able to significantly improve our standards, not only in the delivery of care but also management and administration and we genuinely recognise that we would not be in the position we are today, without the help of Care Focus’”.

Angela Hine, Registered Manager, The Rectory Care Home

"I have been using DBS for Care a lot at the moment and have found its a really easy straight forward site to use, I have also found that the results are coming back very quickly which is very useful! Overall it's been fantastic so far."

Deanna, Recruitment Administrator, Care Home in Bristol

“We thought our safeguarding processes were good. However, when it came to proving this, it was quite difficult. Care Focus helped us to review our systems, improve our procedure and ensure we can prove how we deliver. They were knowledgeable without being pushy and really understood how general practice works”.

Rachel Stark, Practice Manager - East Quay Medical Centre
