CQC Inspection Report

This is a summary of the latest report from the CQC

The service has been developed and designed in line with the principles and values that underpin Registering the Right Support and other best practice guidance. This ensures that people who use the service can live as full a life as possible and achieve the best possible outcomes. The principles reflect the need for people with learning disabilities and/or autism to live meaningful lives that include control, choice, and independence. People using the service receive planned and co-ordinated person-centred support that is appropriate and inclusive for them.

People felt they were safe and relatives raised no concerns over how staff supported their family member. Staff knew how to escalate issues and concerns and were aware of potential risks when providing support. People received their medicines appropriately and as required. Staff used correct equipment, such as gloves and aprons when assisting people. Accidents and incidents were managed appropriately.

Staff received an effective induction and appropriate ongoing training and felt able to support people confidently. People felt staff supported their individual needs and requirements. People received food and drinks as required. People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

People felt staff were kind and caring towards them. People were given choices and were able to make their own decisions as far as possible. Staff supported people to be independent and ensured people’s privacy and dignity was maintained. People and relatives felt involved in the development of care plans. Care plans provided staff with information about people’s needs and preferences and how they would like these to be met. A complaints
procedure was in place and people and their relatives knew how to raise concerns and felt these would be addressed.

People, relatives and staff thought the service was managed well. The registered manager was described as being effective in the way they managed the service. Systems were in place to monitor the delivery of the service. Where issues arose, action was taken to address these.
