A care service was closed after an inspection prompted by a tip-off from police and a whistleblower.
CQC has stripped Allcare Community Care Services Trafford Ltd in Wallsend, North Tyneside of its registration.
The CQC said the company had “continued to ignore our concerns” despite warnings of enforcement action.
The provider said it was “never made aware of the details of any [police] investigation“.
Its director, Russ Oakden, said the service, on High Street East, ceased to trade in October.
