We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, to look at the overall quality of the service, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.

We undertook an unannounced focused inspection of Ashington Grange on 2 February 2017. This inspection was done to check that improvements to meet legal requirements planned by the provider after our July 2015 inspection had been made. We inspected the service against one of the five questions we ask about services: is the service effective?

The inspection was carried out by one inspector. We looked at records relating to the Mental Capacity Act (2005) for nine people who used the service. We additionally looked at records relating to staff training and management of the home. We also reviewed information we held about the service, including any statutory notifications that the provider had sent us. Notifications are made to us by providers in line with their obligations under the Care Quality Commission (Registration) Regulations 2009. These are records of incidents that have occurred within the service, or other matters that the provider is legally obliged to inform us of. We spoke with registered manager and two members of staff. On this occasion, we did not ask for a Provider Information Return (PIR) prior to the inspection. The PIR is a form that asks the provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and any improvements they plan to make.
