Case studies

We recently acted for a client who received a letter from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) late on a Friday afternoon stating that it was considering taking urgent enforcement action against it. 

By Monday afternoon the CQC had served an 'Urgent Notice of Decision' imposing conditions on our client’s registration as a service provider.

As the independent regulator of health and adult social care, the CQC has an overarching role to monitor, inspect and regulate health and social care services to make sure those who use these services receive high-quality, safe, effective and compassionate care.
