We examined evidence which demonstrated to us that people were asked to provide consent when being assessed for treatment and before any care and support was offered to them. People could withdraw consent at any time.

We saw that people were involved in the planning of their care and treatment and that they were kept informed of equipment developments which might benefit them. People we spoke with told us they were happy with the services provided by Charter Healthcare.

Staff we spoke with demonstrated to us an understanding of safeguarding vulnerable people from abuse guidance and procedures. People we spoke with told us they felt safe when Charter Healthcare nurses visited them in their homes.

We found that appropriate checks were undertaken before staff started working at Charter Healthcare. Records examined demonstrated to us that people were cared or supported by suitably qualified staff.
