Overview

Inspection carried out on 30 January 2014

During a routine inspection

Due to the nature of the service provided and risks associated with radiation, we were not able to speak with people who used the service. However, we looked at satisfaction survey information that had been analysed by the care provider. This information showed a high degree of satisfaction with the service. People’s comments included:

“(Names of staff) were fabulous, making special arrangements to help me have PET/CT scan.”

“Today was exceptionally good.”

We saw there were systems in place to make sure people’s written consent was gained for the scanning procedures.

There were effective systems in place to make sure the unit was clean and appropriate procedures were in place to ensure all equipment used was clean and properly maintained.

People were cared for, or supported by, suitably qualified, skilled and experienced staff who had been properly recruited.

The Provider had an effective system to regularly assess and monitor the quality and safety of service that people received.
