CQC enforcement legal advice

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) have a wide range of civil and criminal enforcement powers and the CQC can enforce against registered providers and individuals who are found to be in breach of the regulations. 

Getting the right advice early in the event of any CQC enforcement action can make all the difference in terms of the outcome for providers.

Regulatory action against providers has increased significantly in recent years and there has also been a rise in the levels of sanctions imposed. Enforcement action of any type may also have other implications for a provider. For example, it may impact on commissioning of a service, contracts or the reputation of the provider.

The CQC also have the power to take enforcement action against companies or individuals providing regulated activities without registration.
