LCA Registered Supplier List
LCA have operated a highly successful printed Registered Supplier List (RSL) in the past. We have updated our offer to suppliers and now have an online RSL which we are launching as a feature of our new website. It is ‘work in progress’ at the moment but we expect it to become a major feature on our website. Keep coming back to check what’s on offer. There will be update links in our newsletter.
The sector needs a new way of working with suppliers. Providers face a massive challenge in delivering quality care to adults and older people in care homes and at home in a fast-changing world. Suppliers of services which enable and support the sector in its primary task are crucial to that delivery. This is the new space for a new dialogue between suppliers and providers in Lancashire and the North-West.

LCA Care Home Insurance Scheme
LCA has been working with Stephensons LLP to bring a product that gives extra support for providers under pressures. It is not just another insurance product. It is designed to give providers access to help and support when they are facing a crisis, perhaps when a CQC or Safeguarding intervention (or both) signposts a short road to a possible suspension of admissions and a long road back to viability.
This is part of LCA’s commitment to working with partners to bring help and support from the private and independent sectors to care providers to help provide some balance in a system where providers often feel powerless when faced by CQC and local authority and health commissioners and under threat in a system where blame is more evident than support.
