Background to this inspection

Updated 10 November 2021

The inspection

This was a targeted inspection to check on a specific concern we had about recruitment practices of staff.

Inspection team

The inspection was completed by two inspectors

Service and service type

This service is a domiciliary care agency. It provides personal care to people living in their own houses and flats.

The service had a manager registered with the Care Quality Commission. This means that they and the provider are legally responsible for how the service is run and for the quality and safety of the care provided.

Notice of inspection

We gave the service 48 hours’ notice of the inspection. This was because it is a small service and we needed to be sure that the provider or registered manager would be in the office to support the inspection.

What we did before the inspection

We reviewed information we had received about the service since the last inspection. We sought feedback from the local authority and professionals who work with the service. The provider was not asked to complete a provider information return prior to this inspection. This is information we require providers to send us to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We took this into account when we inspected the service and made the judgements in this report.

During the inspection-

We reviewed 14 staff recruitment files and spoke with the registered manager about recruitment, interviews and obtaining references.

After the inspection –

We asked the registered manager to send us their audit and action plan following their work they did with the quality improvement team in January 2021
