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.

This inspection took place on the 3rd 4th and 8th of December 2015 and was unannounced.

The inspection team was carried out by an adult social care inspector. We met one person staying at the service during our visit and three staff on duty plus the registered manager. We spoke with three next of kin who acted on behalf of their relatives and we observed how support was provided to people during the day.

We used a number of different methods to help us understand the experiences of people who stayed at Cheshire East Short Breaks. We used the Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI). SOFI is a specific way of observing care to help us understand the experience of people who could not talk with us.

We looked around the building as well as checking records. We looked at a sample of documentation in relation to how the service was operating, including records such as; staff recruitment and three staff files showing supervision and training; medication records; staffing rotas; health and safety checks; risk assessments; surveys; minutes of meetings; quality assurance audits and policies and procedures. We looked at a sample of support plans and activity records for people staying at the service. .

Before our inspection we request that the services provide us with a provider information return [PIR] which helps us to prepare for the inspection. This 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.

We looked at any notifications received and reviewed any other information we held prior to visiting. We also invited the local authority to provide us with any information they held about the service.
