Susan Brimelow, the Director of Healthcare Regulation, was interviewed on stv and gmtv’s morning news bulletins as well as being interviewed on Radio Scotland’s Good Morning Scotland programme.

The report – and the general of issue of standards in care homes – also sparked a lively debate on BBC Radio Scotland’s Morning Extra show.

The report, which also received considerable coverage in the print media, revealed how more than 40% of care homes in Scotland need to improve the support they offer people with life-limiting illnesses and those who require palliative and end of life care.
