Care Quality Commission investigations

CQC investigations

The CQC solicitors at Lupton Fawcett in Leeds, Sheffield and York, work with care homes throughout the UK when facing an investigation by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

CQC Solicitors – legal advice for investigations by the CQC

Care homes are an area which the CQC is targeting to ensure that the care provided to vulnerable residents is compliant with the Health and Social Care Act 2008. The CQC has a range of enforcement options open to them, such as Penalty Notices, caution, civil enforcement, prosecution and removal of registration.

All of these can have serious consequences for your business as any penalty imposed will be published on the CQC website which is accessible to the public. It can also put in jeopardy existing contracts with local authorities.
