CQC warns provider that it must make improvements

When the Care Quality Commission visited Burlam Road unannounced on 5 August 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 Dr Peter Calveley (Registered Provider) and Ms.Karen Miller (Registered Manager) telling them that they must improve in the following areas by 14 October 2013:

  • Regulation 13, (Outcome 9): Management of medicines The service was failing to protect people against the risks associated with poor medicines management.

CQC inspectors 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.For more details of the findings from the inspection in August 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.
