Inspection carried out on 24 January 2014

During a routine inspection

People were asked for their consent and their treatment options were discussed with them. People told us, �I�m here because I wanted to be here,� and �I gave my consent to be here as an outpatient.�

People spoke positively about their experience of care and treatment. A person who used the eating disorder service told us, �This is a patient centred and patient focussed service; it feels homely, it is a very nice environment. There is the time and the availability to give you the care you need. We get one-to-one sessions every day.� Another person said, �They work with you in a way that is very gentle and give you the respect you need.�

People who used the service spoke positively about its cleanliness. One person commented, �Cleanliness looks top class everywhere.�

People commented about the staff that worked with them. A visiting healthcare professional told us, �Everyone is approachable; there is an ethos of people working together.� One person said, �The nursing staff go out of their way to care for you; I was very surprised at how kind the staff are and how much they invest in getting to know you. They have a very good working relationship with each other.�

People we asked about making a complaint told us, �If someone wanted to complain, we have been given a form to complete,� and �I have had no need to think about complaining here; there is something about advocacy if you are not happy with the service.�

We spoke with people who used the eating disorder service. One person said, �It is fantastic. I have not been in a place quite like this before. We are treated as individuals and as human beings.� Another person told us, �I feel respected while supported feeding is taking place.� They also commented, �There is a lot of one to one interaction and I feel that I can talk to any member and staff and I feel there is a good chance I will recover here.� People said about the staff that worked with them, �The staff are lovely and supportive.
