Please refer below to excerpts from testimonials written for David Beattie by senior industry professionals and business owners. Hard copies of these and other testimonials will be made available upon meeting with David. 


“David and one of his colleagues have since worked closely with us and as a result within four months we have gone from 5 reds to 3 green and 2 amber on our latest inspection. Our CQC inspector was delighted with the improvements.

I cannot speak highly enough of David and his team, they are knowledgeable and experienced, they know exactly what is required. They are very professional and work quickly and efficiently, and I am always able to contact them for any advice or help with problems that arise. Finally, and most important they produce results for the Home, for the residents and for the staff.”

Care Home Owner (Stoke)


“David advised us on all aspects of care including compliance, recruitment and organisational change. David helped us to restructure our governance and audit systems, assisted in the interviewing and recruitment of our new Registered Manager, provided us with a new robust and comprehensive Pre-Admission Assessment document, and also spent a lot of time educating our staff about how to identify and manage risk effectively.”

Nursing Home Owners (Bury)


“David is driven to create ethical, sustainable businesses which operate with integrity in the best interests of the residents and patients that they serve. He has the experience to skilfully balance the needs of residents and patients, the staff and the shareholders and owners. 

I have now worked with David for large parts of a 15-year period. I admire and respect the manner in which David works and would have no hesitation in recommending him for any senior level post in the care industry.”

Senior Director – Care Industry


“From having worked with David over the last four years, we are able to say that he is very professional, conscientious and was available to provide assistance and support whenever we needed help. In addition, it also evident that David is very knowledgeable about the care industry and that he genuinely believes in the provision of high-quality care for residents.”

Care Home Owners (Surrey)


“When we first started working with David, we were in a difficult position with our commissioning authorities such as the local authority, NHS CCG’s and the Care Quality Commission. With David’s help, expertise and professional approach we were inspired and managed to turn around our business within 6 months and also achieve an overall “good” CQC rating in our 2017 & 2019 inspections.

David has a very strong background in many areas of the care industry. It is very reassuring to know we have a highly experienced, dedicated and dependable care professional in our corner, who will provide us with honest and well-considered advice, regardless of the issue.”

Owner of Domiciliary Care Business (Essex)


“To sum up, the assistance that David has provided to me over the years has been a great help, and David was always available to assist and advise when we needed support. From having worked very closely with David, particularly at the end of 2016 and beginning of 2017, I can confirm that he has an in-depth knowledge and awareness of the care industry; and he always tries to do his best for his clients. Based on that I have no hesitation in recommending David to any care company in the UK.”

Executive Director (National Provider of Live-In Care)


“David was instrumental in CQC withdrawing the proposed cancellation of our Home in late 2017 and he assisted in the Home rapidly improving. Since that time, David has been providing operational and compliance support to our company. We are made up of 5 Homes.

David is very knowledgeable about the care industry and how good care services should run. He is always available, including out of hours and on weekends. He genuinely cares about doing what is best for the business but is able to balance this with doing what is best for our residents and our staff. I would have no hesitation in recommending David’s one-stop shop and his support to anyone in the industry who may need assistance and guidance.”

Company Director, Care Home Group (Stoke)


“David has been assisting me and my company since the beginning of 2017, when I first contacted David. Throughout this period, David has provided invaluable assistance and support, as well as comprehensive and realistic solutions to my company’s needs. David is always available, and provides me with on-going support in many areas, including regulatory advice and the provision of bespoke policies and procedures. Knowing that we have David and his company behind us, has given us the reassurance and tremendous peace of mind that enables us to continue to deliver our high standards of service to our customers and patients.”

Owner, Private Ambulance Service (London)


“David and I designed the action plan for the business, which enabled us to move from Inadequate to an overall Good rating in only 6 months. A substantial element of the plan involved moving the business from a single registered office supporting the whole country to a total of 6 offices across England and Scotland. David and his team completed all of our registration applications from scratch with the CQC in England and Care Inspectorate in Scotland; and helped us to ensure that each new location was working with the same new care management process.

David’s support was essential for our business. We found Care Ideals to be responsive, knowledgeable and commercially astute which is, in my view, a unique combination from a consultancy with a best practice focus. The advice that we received was best practice in theory but also commercially plausible. I cannot imagine having managed the turnaround of the business with any other consultant.”
