People should get safe and appropriate care that meets their needs and supports their rights (outcome 4)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Experience effective, safe and appropriate care, treatment and support that meets their needs and protects their rights.

How this check was done

We carried out a visit on 20 February 2013, talked with staff and reviewed information we asked the provider to send to us.

Our judgement

People experienced care and support that met their needs and protected their rights.

Reasons for our judgement

People’s needs were assessed in line with their individual requirements. People completed a medical questionnaire at their first visit. A full medical history was taken by the doctor and appropriately documented. People would be referred to a specialist if required as Dr Dorrington Ward did not provide any treatment himself. One person had reported that the doctor provided "outstanding patient knowledge and care" and another that he was "invaluable".

There were arrangements in place to deal with foreseeable emergencies. Emergency drugs were in place and were checked routinely. The doctor had received training in Advanced Medicine.
