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 registered 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 28 September 2016 and was unannounced. The inspection team consisted of three adult social care inspectors.

Before this inspection we reviewed the information we held about the service, such as notifications we had received from the registered provider and information we had received from the local authorities that commissioned a service from the home. Notifications are when registered providers send us information about certain changes, events or incidents that occur. We also contacted the local authority safeguarding adults and quality monitoring teams to enquire about any recent involvement they had with the home.

The registered provider was not asked to submit a Provider Information Return (PIR) prior to the inspection, as the date of this inspection was changed. This is a form that asks the registered provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make.

During the inspection we spoke with four members of staff, the registered manager, four people who used the service and three people’s relatives. We spent time observing the interaction between people who lived at the home, the staff and any visitors.

We looked at all areas of the home, including bedrooms (with people's permission) and office accommodation. We also spent time looking at records, which included the care records for three people, people’s medication records, handover records, supervision and training records for three members of staff and quality assurance audits and action plans.
