Of the 51 enforcement notices issued, 30 premises have received follow up visits and been deemed broadly compliant.

In accordance with national guidance, there are no automatic follow up visits on when a notice of decencies (NOD) is issued. However, following a review undertaken by the fire safety department, it means that lessons learned during recent care home inspections London Fire Brigade will, in future, be following up on the more serious contraventions that result in NODs.
