Rating at last inspection

At our last inspection on 21 September 2016 we rated the service good. At this inspection we found that the key question of safe had improved to good. We also found the evidence continued to support the rating of good and there was no evidence or information from our inspection and ongoing monitoring that demonstrated serious risks or concerns. This inspection report is written in a shorter format because our overall rating of the service has not changed since our last inspection.

At this inspection we found the service remained Good.
