People’s experience of using this service and what we found

People were supported to take their medicines in a safe and caring way. Staff were trained in administering medicines and day staff had had their competency checked regularly. However, some areas in the management of records for medicines needed to be improved. For example, the information for staff about when to give as required medicines was not always completed.

People could look after their own medicines if they wanted to and this was risk assessed by staff to ensure it was safe for them to do so.

For more details, please see the full report which is on the CQC website at www.cqc.org.uk

Rating at last inspection.

The last rating for this service was good (published 17 January 2020).

Why we inspected.

We undertook this targeted inspection to check on a specific concern we had received about the safe management of medicines. The overall rating for the service has not changed following this targeted inspection and remains good.

CQC have introduced targeted inspections to follow up on Warning Notices or to check specific concerns. They do not look at an entire key question, only the part of the key question we are specifically concerned about. Targeted inspections do not change the rating from the previous inspection. This is because they do not assess all areas of a key question.

We found no evidence during this inspection that people were at risk of harm from this concern. Please see the safe section of this full report.

Follow up.

We will continue to monitor information we receive about the service until we return to visit as per our re-inspection programme. If we receive any concerning information we may inspect sooner.
