As a result, CQC has issued formal warnings to Fairfields House Limited telling them that they must improve in the following areas by 13 July 2013:

  • Regulation 9, (Outcome 4): Care and welfare of people who use services

The service was failing to ensure people were protected against the risks of receiving inappropriate or unsafe care or treatment.

  • Regulation 20, (Outcome 21): Records

The service was failing to ensure that appropriate records were kept.

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 April 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.
