    A very useful initiative methinks.

    Haven't anything current to contribute ...

    When we were looking for a nursing home for Mum 2 years ago, there was a theoretical "choice" of only two in the same town (the place being close to my parents' home and accessible by bus or taxi was important because we knew Dad would want to visit every day). One home refused Mum because she was too mobile then; it was also not on the bus route. The home Mum is now in only takes self-funders and only had one vacancy at the time.
