Abstract

In this section you will learn about the lack of legal safeguards in relation to the provision of residential care by non-listed private companies. These are not subject to the UK Corporate Governance Code and legislative provisions that apply to listed public companies. This means, for example, that a sole director is sufficient to run a company without external or independent scrutiny, a not uncommon situation in the care market. Despite the weaknesses in the current legal position concerning private, non-listed companies (which needs urgent reform), Dr P Das and Dr N Das could have been made accountable on other grounds in both civil and criminal law. It is unclear why such steps were not pursued.
