Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

How this check was done

We reviewed all the information we hold about this provider, carried out a visit on 11/05/2011, checked the provider's records, observed how people were being cared for, looked at records of people who use services, reviewed information from people who use the service, talked to staff and talked to people who use services.

Our judgement

We found this location cooperates with other providers to ensure people who use services receive coordinated care, treatment and support where more than one provider may be involved. No gaps in assurance or areas of concern were identified during the assessment of this outcome for this location.

It was not possible to gain the direct views of people who use the service for this outcome.

Other evidence

The provider declared compliance with this outcome at this location at registration with CQC October 2010 and our quality and risk profile (QRP) was checked.

Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was contacted prior to this review as they have a contractual agreement with Fresenius to provide dialysis services at this location. They told us that they have regular contract review meetings and in addition the NHS trust’s renal haemodialysis matron conducts regular announced and unannounced visits to the unit to monitor standards and care.
