The CQC have a range of powers that they can use to enforce compliance. For example:

  1. Issue a warning notice, asking for improvements within a short period of time.
  2. Restrict the services that the care provider can offer.
  3. Restrict admissions to the service
  4. Issue a fixed penalty notice
  5. Suspend the care provider’s registration.
  6. Cancel the care provider’s registration.
  7. Prosecute the care provider.

The CQC work with local authorities, regulators and agencies, and sometimes the police, to make sure the necessary action is taken.
