The CQC has advised the following information:
Table showing the number of care homes de-activated as a result of enforced de-registration of the provider by the CQC, by latest overall rating where applicable.
No published overall rating
Total care homes de-activated due to enforced de-registration of the provider
Total care homes for providers deregistered through enforcement
For the purposes of this Question, the CQC has included information relating to services which have been subject to enforced de-registration. There will be a number of other care homes who voluntarily exited the market before being forcibly removed by the CQC.
The CQC is not currently able to separate private and council-run services within adult social care. The CQC is currently looking at the way in which it records and reports on adult social care information.
However, the table shows the number of locations closed as a result of the enforced de-registration of the provider. In some cases, these will be true closures where the care home service is no longer open or operating. In others it may be that the care home has appeared to close but the service continues under a new registration due to a legal entity change or a change in the provider.
Enforced de-registration is only recorded at provider level and the CQC cannot currently report on locations closed through enforcement if the provider de-registered voluntarily or remains registered (if one of a provider’s locations is closed). Therefore, the table will not be an exhaustive list of the care homes the CQC has closed down; the actual figure will likely be higher.
