Dear Care Quality Commission,

Where you aware that Mr Peter Curtis CEO and Director of Forest Healthcare which ran the Ash Court Nursing Home, when Panorama uncovered the scandal of systematic abuse of its patients, is now a Director of Gracewell Healthcare which run a chain of new Nursing Homes across the UK? Their web site is here http://www.gracewell.co.uk/

They proposing a Nursing in my village Lane End in Bucks along with a new GP Surgery, Pharmacy and industrial units.

What extra monitoring of Gracewell Healthcare is the CQC putting in place given Ash Court extremely chequered history?

As per Section 4a of Part 1 of the FOI Act
(

[1]http://www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts2000/ukp...
) I would like the information in question held at the time when my
request is received (draft or otherwise), except that account may
be taken of any amendment or deletion made between now and the
latest time by which the information is to be communicated to me,
being an amendment or deletion that would have been made regardless
of the receipt of my request.

I would be grateful if you would be kind enough to send me the
requested information promptly and in any event not later than the
twentieth working day following the date of receipt of my request -
that is by then end of the working day of 31st August 2010.

If my request is denied in whole or in part, or specific items
within the responses are withheld from disclosure, then you must
justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the
act, as per Section 17 of the Act
(

[2]http://www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts2000/ukp...
). Where you rely on a qualified exemption to withhold disclosure,
you are obliged to consider the public interest in your decision
and the refusal notice must explain not only which exemption
applies and why, but also the public interest arguments addressed
in reaching the decision.

I wish to receive the information by email; I believe such a
request would be reasonable in these circumstances. As per Section
11 of Part 1 of the FOI Act (

[3]http://www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts2000/ukp...
) I would be grateful if you would "so far as reasonably
practicable give effect to that preference"; if you determine that
it is not reasonably practicable to comply with this preference
then you are required by law to notify me of the reasons for your
determination.

The "return address" (to which the information that I have
requested be should be sent ) is the email address that this
particular request originates from.

I would be grateful if you would kindly acknowledge receipt of this
request as recommended by the ICO ("It would be good practice to
acknowledge receipt of requests and to refer to the 20 working day
time limit, so that applicants know their request is being dealt
with").
Yours faithfully,
