When the Care Quality Commission visited Philip Parkinson Homecare Ltd unannounced on 24 July 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 Philip Parkinson Homecare Ltd telling them that they must improve in the following area by 5 September 2014.

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

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 July 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.
