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

The purpose of the follow up visit was to check whether the provider had made improvements to areas found non-compliant during our last visit in August 2013.

We also looked at seclusion facilities and seclusion records, as concerns had been identified at a Care Quality Commission Mental Health Act seclusion monitoring visit on 22 November 2013.

The inspection team consisted of one CQC compliance inspector and a mental health specialist advisor. We visited Bradlaugh, Ferguson and Fairbairn wards. We spoke with staff, patients and the ward managers.

We found the provider had made improvements to the d�cor on Bradlaugh ward, although the replacement of the worn chairs on the ward was still outstanding.

We also found that improvements were needed to meet full compliance with the regulations in relation to the use of seclusion.
