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.

The inspection took place on 24 November 2015 and was unannounced. The inspection team consisted of one adult social care inspector, a pharmacist inspector, a specialist advisor in nursing and governance, a specialist advisor in dementia care and an expert-by-experience who had experience of older people’s care services and dementia care. An expert-by-experience is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of care service.

Before the inspection, we asked the provider to complete a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that asks the provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. They returned the PIR March 2015 and we took this into account when we made the judgements in this report.

Prior to this inspection we reviewed all the information we held about the service. This included previous inspection reports and any statutory notifications that had been sent to us. We contacted the local authority and Healthwatch. We were not made aware of any concerns by the local authority. Healthwatch feedback stated they had no comments or concerns. Healthwatch is an

independent consumer champion that gathers and represents the views of the public about health and social care services in England.

At the time of our inspection there were 61 people living at Pennington Court. During our visit we spoke with 14 people who used the service, five visitors and nine members of staff and the registered manager. We spent some time looking at documents and records that related to people’s care and support and the management of the service. We looked at nine people’s care records.
