CQC warns Congleton practice

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has warned Dr Setumo Madiehe that improvements must be made to the practice at 7 West Street, Congleton, Cheshire. It is thought that this is the first time CQC has taken such action. The practice could be closed if improvements are not made. The local PCT has also expressed concerns about the practice.

CQC reports that West Street Dental Practice is in a three storey house situated on a busy street in the centre of Congleton. There is a dental surgery, a waiting and reception area and a small kitchen on the ground floor. A dental surgery, a waiting room, an x-ray developing room and toilet facilities are on the first floor. The second floor is unoccupied. The practice employs two part-time dentists.

Improvements are required in standards of ‘providing care, treatment and support that meets people’s needs’, also ‘standards of caring for people safely and protecting them from harm’ and standards of staffing.

The full report can be found on the CQC website (www.cqc.org.uk). Dr Madiehe also owns the Warbreck Moor Dental Practice in Aintree, Liverpool, which is fully compliant with CQC standards.
