There should be enough members of staff to keep people safe and meet their health and welfare needs (outcome 13)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are safe and their health and welfare needs are met by sufficient numbers of appropriate staff.

How this check was done

We carried out a visit on 17 January 2013, talked with people who use the service and talked with staff.

Our judgement

There were enough qualified, skilled and experienced staff to meet people's needs.

Reasons for our judgement

Only one GP out of four was required to work at any one time. This meant the service could respond to changing circumstances such as sickness or annual leave.

All four GPs who were available to work at this service had been qualified for over 10 years. They were all registered with the General Medical Council. In the 12 months prior to our inspection, there had never been an occasion when the service could not operate owing to staffing issues. This meant there were sufficient numbers of suitably qualified and experienced staff.
