We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection checked 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 unannounced comprehensive inspection took place on 3 May 2018 and 9 May 2018 and was carried out by one adult social care inspector and an expert by experience. An expert-by-experience is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of care service. We contacted the commissioners of the relevant local authority, the local authority safeguarding team, the fire service and other professionals who had worked with the service
Before the inspection we reviewed all the information we held about the service, which included notifications submitted to CQC by the provider. Notifications are changes, events or incidents the provider is legally obliged to send us within required timescales.
