Improvements required at care agency in Hendon, north London.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has issued a formal warning to Caring Sharing & Company Limited that it must make improvements at a care agency based in Hendon, north London.

The warning notice has been issued following an unannounced inspection of Caring Sharing & Company Limited, in Heriot Road, in July.

The agency had failed to notify CQC of serious incidents involving people using the service. Providers are required by law to make notifications to CQC when these events occur. &

Matthew Trainer, Deputy Director of CQC in London, said:

“The standards of quality and safety in care that CQC checks are those that the law says everyone should expect. Providers have a duty to be compliant.

“Our inspectors will return in the near future to carry out another inspection. If we find that the agency is not maintaining compliance with the standards, we won’t hesitate to use our legal powers further.”

Notes to editors

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 essential standards.  Any regulatory decision that CQC takes is open to challenge by a registered person through a variety of internal and external appeal processes.
