Sister Kate Limited has become the first ear wax removal clinic in Shropshire to become regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Who are the CQC and what does this mean?

CQC is the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England.

They make sure health and social care services are safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality and they also encourage care services to improve.

CQC also monitor, inspect and regulate services and publish what they find. It is now a legal requirement to be regulated by CQC if you are a Registered Nurse offering ear wax removal services.

Kate Haining, owner of Sister Kate Ltd said, “This is an unbelievable achievement for our team and to be the first to achieve this in the county feels great.

“Undertaking CQC regulation is no easy task and it means that the fundamental standards are the standards below which our care must never fall.

“Our staff, governance and premises are all now regulated in order to deliver a world class ear wax removal service.”

CQC regulation does not currently apply in Wales, but it is expected that this may change in the future.

You should always attend CQC registered clinics when looking to receive the best levels of service from any care provider.
