About the service

PHC Health Care Ltd London is a domiciliary care service registered to provide personal care to people living in their own homes.

At the time of our inspection there were six people using the service.

Not everyone who used the service received personal care. CQC only inspects where people receive personal care. This is help with tasks related to personal hygiene and eating. Where they do we also consider any wider social care provided.
