When the Care Quality Commission visited The Meadows Care Home unannounced on 8 January 2014, 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 Tamaris Care Properties Limited telling them that they must improve in the following area by 21 February 2014:

  • Regulation 9, (Outcome 4): Care and welfare of people who use services The service was not taking appropriate steps to ensure that people experienced effective, safe and appropriate care, treatment and support that met their needs and protected their rights.

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 January 2014. 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.
