When the Care Quality Commission visited Cura Care Limited unannounced on 29 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 issued a formal warning to Cura Care Limited telling them that they must improve in the following area by 30 August 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.

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, 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.
