The registration follows the CQC’s 07 November 2012 Site Visit & Fit Person Interview of Penrose Care’s premises and registered manager, respectively, and notice of decision of 13 November 2012. Penrose Care applied for registration as a new service provider on 23 Oct 2012.
“With the CQC providing us their notice of decision just three weeks after our registration application for a process which can take up to eight weeks, we are extraordinarily pleased with the speed at which the CQC registered Penrose Care as a new home care provider in England.
