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 8 and 13 February 2017 and was unannounced.

The inspection was carried out by two inspectors 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.

Before the inspection, the provider completed 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. We looked at information we held about the service. This included previous inspection reports and notifications we had received. Notifications are certain events that providers are required by law to tell us about.

We spoke with two people who used the service, four relatives and one visiting health professional. We also spoke with the registered manager, matron, deputy matron, facilities manager, two nurses and six members of the care staff team.

During the inspection we looked at five people's care records, four staff files and other records related to the management of the service. We observed care practice throughout the inspection. We used the Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI). SOFI is a way of observing care to help us understand the experience of people who could not talk with us.

Following the inspection we received feedback from two healthcare professionals. .
