Rating at last inspection:

At the last inspection in August/September 2017 the service was rated Requires Improvement (report published on 14 March 2018). At that inspection we found two breaches of Regulations. They related to safe care and treatment and quality monitoring systems.

Why we inspected:

This was a planned inspection based on the rating at the last inspection. The provider is no longer in breach of the two Regulations identified at the last inspection. At this inspection the service has made sufficient improvements to be rated Good.

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