Investigations by a professional body can be a distressing experience for any professional. In addition to acting for professional regulators such as the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and numerous healthcare regulators, we support clients in inspections and investigations by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Health and Safety Executive (HSE), helping health, social and primary care providers stay compliant and challenge unfair ratings when required.

How can Capsticks help?

  • Care Quality Commission (CQC)

    We provide health and social care organisations with advice in relation to CQC inspections, including vital training sessions prior to inspection and, if necessary, assistance in challenging erroneous findings afterwards.

    We know how important a good rating is and have a national reputation for supporting providers of health and social care with these issues and a proven track record in delivering successful outcomes in relation to CQC inspections and enforcement activity.

  • Professional disciplinary and fitness to practise

    Regulatory processes are incredibly stressful experiences for any clinician or healthcare professional involved, and can lead to the loss of a professional’s livelihood and significant reputational damage. We offer guidance and assistance at all stages of an investigation, from an internal hospital disciplinary process through to a fitness practice hearing before the individual’s regulatory body.

  • Health and safety

    Our team of seasoned regulatory lawyers defends clients against prosecutions from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), Care Quality Commission (CQC) or local authorities. We also advise on investigations leading to such prosecutions, including attending interviews under caution.
