Unregistered Domiciliary Care Provider Prosecuted by CQC

A company director that illegally provided domiciliary care services from three north London addresses has been fined more than £3,500 at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court.

The company was not registered with the Care Quality Commission as required by the Health and Social Care Act 2008.

Mr Yousef Jowaheer was fined £1200 for each offence (two offences as Director for CapeHealth Care and Cape Home Care‎) and was also ordered to pay £170 victim surcharge and £966.40 costs, making a total of £3536.40.

He was disqualified as a company director for five years following the hearing on 3 August 2018.

Mr Jowaheer ran care services from different addresses in north London at: Broadhurst Gardens, Camden; Talbot House, Imperial Drive, Harrow and Canada House Business Centre, Ruislip, Hillingdon, over a period of years.

Andrea Sutcliffe, CQC’s Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care, said:“It has taken over two years for this individual to be located, and brought to justice and I would like to thank CQC staff that tracked down and helped prosecute Mr Jowaheer. We register and regulate services so that people can be protected and ensure they get good quality care.”

The company is no longer providing care services.
