How we inspected this service
Before visiting we reviewed a range of information we hold about the service and information provided pre-inspection by the service.
During our inspection we:
- Spoke with the registered provider and registered manager.
- Spoke with reception staff.
- Looked at information the clinic used to deliver care and treatment plans.
- Reviewed documents and policies used by the service.
- Reviewed patient feedback received on-line and by CQC.
- Observed the premises where services were delivered from.
To get to the heart of patients’ experiences of care and treatment, we always ask the following five questions:
- Is it safe?
- Is it effective?
- Is it caring?
- Is it responsive to people’s needs?
- Is it well-led?
These questions therefore formed the framework for the areas we looked at during the inspection.
