We recommend that within eight weeks of this report, the CQC should:

  • send a formal apology to Ms K for the injustice and distress that their actions have caused her
  • offer £500 to Ms K in recognition of the injustice caused to her
  • review their learning from this case and report back to us on the improvements they have made to demonstrate rigour in their FPPR considerations.
