What our icons mean

All standards were being met when we inspected the service. If this service has not had a CQC inspection since it registered with us, our judgement may be based on our assessment of declarations and evidence supplied by the service.
At least one standard in this area was not being met when we inspected the service and we required improvements.
At least one standard in this area was not being met when we inspected the service and we have taken enforcement action.


What does a grey cross mean

At least one standard in this area was not being met when we inspected the service and we required improvements.

What happens next
The service will tell us how it is making improvements. Once we are happy that the improvements have been made, we will update our judgement to show a green tick. Other times, we may have to carry out a 'follow-up' inspection to check improvements.


How can I get more information
Our inspector's report will give you more information about why the service received a grey cross. You can also contact the service directly or visit its website for more details on any improvements it has made.



What does a red cross mean

At least one standard was not being met when we inspected the service and we took enforcement action.

What happens next
The type of enforcement action we take depends on the seriousness of our inspector's findings, and the service must make improvements before we update the judgement on our website.
