We also asked the provider to eview the legionella risk assessment to ensure they are appropriate for the service premises and ensure meet the service premises meet the requirements of the Electrical at Work Regulations 1989.

This inspection was an announced focused inspection carried out on 10 January 2019 to confirm that the service had carried out their plan to meet the legal requirements in relation to the issues that we identified in our previous inspection on 20 February 2018. This report covers our findings in relation to those requirements and also additional improvements made since our last inspection.

We found that this service was providing safe care in accordance with the relevant regulations.

CQC inspected the service on 20 February 2018 and asked the provider to make improvements regarding infection prevention procedures, recruitment, legionella and to ensure that all policies were in line with current legislation. We checked these areas as part of this focused desktop inspection and found this had been resolved.

The provider was an aesthetic (plastic) surgeon who offered consultations pre and post-operatively to aesthetic surgery at private clinic rooms. The provider performed the surgery within a designated hospital.

This service is registered with CQC under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 in respect of some, but not all, of the services it provides. There are some exemptions from regulation by CQC which relate to particular types of service and these are set out in Schedule 2 of The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014. At B Matti Company Limited services, the aesthetic cosmetic treatments that are also provided are exempt by law from CQC regulation unless they are used to treat a medical condition. Therefore, we were only able to inspect the treatments covered by the CQC registration. At this service these included:-

  • Pre and post-operative care for aesthetic surgery.
  • Minor surgery carried out on the premises.
  • Botulinum toxin, when used for increased sweating or acne.

Mr Basim Matti is the registered manager. A registered manager is a person who is registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are ‘registered persons’. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run.

Our key findings were:

  • Systems and processes were in place to keep people safe. The service lead was the lead member of staff for safeguarding and had undertaken adult and child safeguarding training.

  • The provider was aware of current evidence based guidance and they had the skills, knowledge and experience to carry out his role.

  • There were clear policies governing infection control and the decontamination of reusable instruments.

  • The provider had a recruitment policy which included obtaining references and a DBS check prior to a candidate starting employment. (DBS checks identify whether a person has a criminal record or is on an official list of people barred from working in roles where they may have contact with children or adults who may be vulnerable).

  • Governance arrangements were in place. There were clear responsibilities, roles and systems of accountability to support good governance and management.

  • The service had a number of policies to govern activity and these had been reviewed since the last inspection to ensure they were in line with current legislation.
