When the Care Quality Commission visited BMI The Saxon Clinic unannounced on 18 June 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 BMI Healthcare Limited telling them that they must improve in the following areas by 31 July 2013:

  • Regulation 20 (Outcome 21) Records

People were not protected from the risks of unsafe or inappropriate care and treatment because accurate and appropriate records were not maintained.  

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 June 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.
