There should be enough members of staff to keep people safe and meet their health and welfare needs (outcome 13)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are safe and their health and welfare needs are met by sufficient numbers of appropriate staff.

How this check was done

We looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 28 March 2013, talked with people who use the service and talked with staff.

Our judgement

There were enough qualified, skilled and experienced staff to meet people’s needs.

Reasons for our judgement

The provider does not employ any staff for the service. The provider is a trained general practitioner and undertakes full medical training on a regular basis. We saw that to ensure that he sustains his medial membership he needs to provide the registration body with detailed accounts of hours in practise. We saw the training that the provider has attended over the past year and this ranges in medical and clinical training. The membership body assesses this as enough for the practitioner to have his professional membership renewed.

There is a individual that has been indentified as a ‘bank’ worker who is in place in case of the fact that the provider is unable to attend the event for any reason we saw that all necessary checks had been completed including CRB and two references from medical practitioners. We also saw a list of all the training that has been completed by this individual. To date this person has worked any hours for the provider but we saw that everything as in place if the need did present itself.
