Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are safe and their health and welfare needs are met by staff who are fit, appropriately qualified and are physically and mentally able to do their job.

How this check was done

We looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 19 March 2013, observed how people were being cared for and talked with people who use the service. We talked with staff.

Our judgement

People were cared for, or supported by, suitably qualified, skilled and experienced staff.

Reasons for our judgement

The dentists had current registration with the General Dental Council (GDC) and staff confirmed that the trainee nurse was supervised at all times.

We reviewed the practice's recruitment policies and procedures. There had been no need to use bank or agency staff at the practice.

Staff told us that continuing professional development was encouraged and that some training was made available at the practice. Records were kept of all staff training.

The dentists had professional indemnity insurance for themselves and additional insurance which covered the entire practice.
