Care Quality Commission enforcement

If you are a care provider facing enforcement action or an investigation by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) then is it vital that you receive specialist advice to defend your reputation and business. Whether you are providing residential care with or without nursing, domiciliary care or even care for young adults with disabilities it is vital that you seek expert advice. You will need to speak to a specialist care solicitor and for immediate advice contact our specialist team now on 0175 321 6399.

The regulations governing this area have become increasingly complex and you need to be able to identify issues that may affect your registration. We have a specialist team of lawyers with extensive experience in the care sector and we can assist you with the entire process from a CQC inspection to defending a prosecution.

As CQC lawyers we regularly act for care providers facing the following compliance issues:

  • CQC Inspections where alleged breaches of the regulations have been identified
  • Requirement notices
  • Warning notices
  • Notices to cancel or suspend registration
  • Restrictions on services
  • Fixed penalty notices
  • Interviews under caution
  • Prosecution
  • Appeals against enforcement decisions
  • Challenging an inspection ratings decision

As specialists in this area we understand that any potential enforcement issue will impact significantly on your business and in many cases unfairly so. We can assist in preparing written submissions to challenge the allegations and to ensure the report is factually accurate.

We can also advise in circumstances where you need assistance in preventing enforcement being taken where you accept that breaches have been found. In these circumstances it is important to take robust action and set out an action plan to show how you intend to address these matters. This can be done with a view to limiting the damage to you and your business.

It is important to protect your business with advice from a specialist before you take any other action. Defending you and your business is our primary concern. For a confidential no obligation discussion regarding your case please contact our specialist team on 0175 321 6399.
