When the Care Quality Commission visited Dr Prasanta Mukhopadhyay announced on 2 January 2014, 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 Dr Prasanta Mukhopadhyay telling them that they must improve in the following area by 1 March 2014:

  • Regulation 12, (Outcome 8): Cleanliness and infection control

The service was failing to ensure people were protected from the identifiable risks of acquiring a health care associated infection.

CQC inspectors will return announced in due course to check whether the required improvements have been made. For more details of the findings from the inspection in January 2014, 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.
