Inspection carried out on 20 December 2012

During a routine inspection

We used a number of different methods to help us understand the experiences of people using the service, including observing care and speaking to those people who could give their views on the hospital. We spoke with four people who were being cared for in this hospital about their care and treatment. We also spoke with four sets of relatives of people who were being cared for in this hospital. All the people we spoke with were very positive about the care they received. One person who used the service told us: "They’re great the staff". Another said of staff that work in the hospital: "they’re five star – they work to your standards". A third person said: "It’s fantastic. I can’t think of anything more they could do".

We went with a Mental Health Act Commissioner. The Mental Health Act Commissioner considers whether the Mental Health Act and the Mental Health Act Code of Practice is being followed. They also proactively visit and interview people who are detained under the Mental Health Act. The Mental Health Act Commissioner interviewed one detained patient and made contact with three others.

We found that the hospital was meeting the essential standards and people were well cared for. The only exception was the requirement regarding staff receiving appropriate supervision, where we have issued a compliance action.
