Like registered providers, they are 'registered persons'. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated regulations about how the service is run.

This was the first inspection since registering with the Care Quality Commission. At this inspection we found people received a service that was well led, providing safe, caring, effective and responsive care and support that met their needs.

People felt safe using the service and staff understood how to protect people from abuse and harm. There were procedures to keep people safe and manage identified risks to people’s care.

People had a detailed assessment of their health and social care needs before they used the service. Care plans contained detailed information to enable staff to provide people with the appropriate care and support for their needs. People’s care needs were regularly reviewed. The management team maintained regular contact with people, or their relatives, to check the care provided was what people needed and expected. People told us staff were reliable and stayed for the time needed. People were treated with dignity and respect.

Where medicines were administered, staff were trained and assessed as competent to do so safely. The provider had a recruitment process that had suitable checks to ensure that prior to staff starting work, they were suitable to support people who used the service.

People knew how to complain and information about making a complaint was available for people when they started using the service. There was a system to log and action any complaints or concerns that people had raised.

Staff felt there was good access to training and felt supported in their roles. People were assisted to access health services when needed and staff worked well with other health and social care professionals.

The principles of the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) were followed by staff. People’s decisions and choices were respected and people felt involved in their care. People were supported to have choice and control of their lives and staff sought permission before assisting them.
