The owner of a domiciliary care service based in West Yorkshire is due to be sentenced tomorrow for operating without CQC registration.
Beverley Bevis, who ran the service in Morely, is due to appear before Leeds Magistrates’ Court after pleading guilty to the offence prosecuted by the Care Quality Commission.
It is a legal requirement for home care providers offering personal care to be registered with the CQC under the Health and Social Care Act 2008.
In June 2020, a home care provider based in Portsmouth was ordered to pay more than £44,000 after it was found to be operating illegally for five years.
The owners of Golden Years Caring at Home, located in Cosham, were prosecuted by the CQC after it was discovered that the business had been operating since March 2015 without registering with the watchdog.
The directors were fined £34,833 at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday (June 10). They were also ordered to pay a £170 victim surcharge and £9,000 in costs as a result of the prosecution brought by the CQC.
Tomorrow’s hearing is due to take place at 10.30am. More to follow.
