CQC demands improvements at Clemsfold House

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has told the registered service providers for Clemsfold House in Horsham that they must improve the services offered at this care home.

Clemsfold House is registered to provide accommodation for people requiring personal care for up to 48 people. Inspectors from the CQC undertook a compliance visit recently and concluded that the care home is not meeting one or more of the essential standards and that improvements were needed to improve the standard and quality of care given to patients.

Amanda Sherlock, CQC’s director of Operations, said: “By law, providers of certain adult social care and health care services have a responsibility to make sure they are meeting essential standards of quality and safety. These are the standards everyone should be able to expect when they receive care.

“We have told the provider where they need to improve and our inspectors will follow up to ensure those improvements are made. If we find that the service does not make progress, then we will consider further action.”
