Inspection carried out on 6 December 2013

During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

During our previous inspection on 4 and 5 April 2013 we had concerns about the company�s recruitment processes and the information recorded in the staff files. We asked the provider to send us an action plan detailing how improvements would be made.

We received an action plan on 30 May 2013.

During our recent visit we saw the provider had clear guidelines on the type of references that would be accepted and this was clearly shown on the application form. Where people had previously been in employment they were required to give the name of their previous employer as a referee. Where people had not worked before they were asked to provide two character references. These references had to be from professional people, for example school head teachers or GPs.

We saw people who were employed by the service had Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks carried out. Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) previously Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checks identified whether a person had been convicted of any criminal offences, to enable the provider to determine whether the person was suitable for the job role.
