When the Care Quality Commission visited Colbury House Nursing and Residential Home unannounced on 17 July 2013 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 Colbury Care Limited telling them that they must improve in the following areas by 14 August 2013.

  • Regulation 21, (Outcome 12): Requirements relating to workers

The service was not operating effective recruitment procedures to ensure people employed were suitable to perform their role.

For more details of the findings from the inspection in July 2013, read the full report here.

CQC will return unannounced in due course to check whether the required improvements have been made. This page will be updated when the findings from that inspection are published.

If the required improvements are not made within a 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 essential standards.
