When the Care Quality Commission CQC visited Kingsley Rest Home unannounced on 30 December 2013, we found that the service was failing to meet the national standards that people should be able to expect.

As a result, CQC has issued a formal warning to the provider, telling them that they must improve in the following area by 10 February 2014:

  • Regulation 13, (Outcome 9): Management of medicines The service was failing to protect people against the risks associated with medicines.

CQC will return unannounced in due course to check whether the required improvements have been made. For more details of the findings from the inspection in December 2013. Read the full report here.

If the required improvements are not made within the set timescale, CQC has a range of enforcement powers which include restricting the services that a provider can offer, or, in the most serious cases, suspending or cancelling a service. CQC can also issue financial penalty notices and cautions, or prosecute the provider for failing to meet national standards.
