We found that there were sufficient care and other staff to meet the needs of people who used the service. One person said, ��I can�t see any problems with care staffing levels. There seem to be enough. Occasionally at peak times you have to wait a few minutes but that�s to be expected�. One staff member told us, �We all work so well together. Even when we are busy we support each other and give the best care we can�.

We found that an effective complaints procedure was in place. All three people that we spoke with confirmed that they would be confident to make a complaint about the service if necessary.
