CQC warns provider that it must make improvements

When the Care Quality Commission visited 100 Grosvenor Terrace unannounced on 7 August 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 Brandon Trust telling them that they must improve in the following areas by 8 November 2013:

  • Regulation 15: People who use the service, staff and visitors were not protected against the risks of unsafe or unsuitable premises.

CQC inspectors 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 August 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.
