About the service

Newcross Healthcare Solutions Limited is a domiciliary care service that provides personal care and support to people living in their own homes. The service supported four people at the time of the inspection

Not everyone who used the service received personal care. CQC only inspects where people receive personal care. This is help with tasks related to personal hygiene and eating. Where they do we also consider any wider social care provided.

Since starting to deliver care and support in January 2019 the provider had recently recruited a new manager who had submitted their application to register with CQC to ensure the provider met their registration requirements.

People’s experience of using this service and what we found

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

People and their relatives were positive about the caring nature and approach of staff. One relative told us their loved ones were the happiest they had been for a long time since receiving care and support from the service. They told us they felt safe when staff visited and were confident that any concerns would be dealt with promptly. Appropriate numbers of staff who arrived on time supported people and stayed for the designated amount of time to deliver the care and support people required.

Each person had an informative care plan which was used as guidance for staff. Where any risks were identified, management plans were in place. People were supported in a way that recognised their rights to take risks.

People views on the service were sought. Regular people and staff team meetings took place. Quality assurance systems were in place to enable the service to identify areas for improvement and ensure people received a good quality service.

Staff told us they had received appropriate training which supported them to carry out their role. Staff told us they could seek advice from the manager and carers. The manager and staff were passionate about the care they delivered and were driven to improve the service.

The manager acted on concerns to ensure people received care which was safe and responsive to their needs. Staff were trained in safeguarding people and protecting them from harm. Any concerns or accidents were reported and acted on.

The manager monitored the delivery of care through staff observations and feedback from people.
