People should get safe and coordinated care when they move between different services (outcome 6)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Receive safe and coordinated care, treatment and support where more than one provider is involved, or they are moved between services.

How this check was done

Our judgement

We found that the service cooperates with others involved in the care and support of people who use this service

User experience

People who use the service were asked how they feel about it and the staff who look after them. Their comments include “ they tailor care around my needs", "they involve me and know what my needs are", and "they really look after me".

A relative was positive about the service and said the staff were "good" and "kind".

Other evidence

Information provided by the Local Authority shows that the service cooperates with them in the areas of safeguarding and planning care for the people who use the service.

During our visit we examined the care records of four people who use the service. The records showed the involvement of health and social care professionals in people’s care. This involvement included input from care managers.
