When the Care Quality Commission visited Clyde House Limited unannounced on 21 May 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 formal warnings to Clyde House Limited telling them that they must improve in the following areas by 30 June 2013:

  • 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

  • Regulation 15, (Outcome 10): Safety and suitability of premises

The service was failing to ensure people at its property were protected against the risks associated with unsafe or unsuitable premises.

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 May 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.
