When the Care Quality Commission visited North Park Health Centre on 13 May 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 formal warnings to the three registered partners for the service provider North Park Health Centre and to the registered manager telling them that they must improve in the following area by 30 June 2014.

  • 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 treatment or care.

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 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.
