Brancepeth Court is a residential home providing nursing and personal care mainly to older people and people living with a dementia. It can accommodate up to 49 people in one purpose-built building. There were 33 people using the service when we visited.

We found the following examples of good practice.

• Systems were in place to allow safe visiting, including screening visitors to reduce any potential infection risk, before they entered the building.

• Social distancing was encouraged, and changes had been made to communal areas to promote this.

• Staff wore personal protective equipment (PPE). Training in infection prevention and control measures and the appropriate use of PPE had taken place.

• Systems were in place to admit people safely into the home.

• A regular programme of Covid-19 testing was in place for people and the staff team.
