When the Care Quality Commission visited Speke Care Home (Residential) unannounced on 31 March 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 formal warnings to Mr Abid Y Chudary and Mrs Chand Khurshid Latif telling them that they must improve in the following areas by 1 July 2014.

  • Regulation 22, (Outcome 13): Staffing

The service was not taking appropriate steps to ensure that there were sufficient numbers of suitably qualified staff on duty at all times to meet people’s needs.

  • Regulation 10, (Outcome 16): Assessing and monitoring the quality if service provision

The service was not protecting people against the risks of unsafe care and treatment by not effectively assessing and monitoring the quality of service provided.

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 March 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.
