How we inspected this service

Before the inspection visit, we reviewed a range of information we hold about the service and information sent by the provider.

During the inspection we spoke with the provider reviewed key documents supporting the delivery of the service, reviewed a sample of treatment records and made observations about the areas the service was delivered from.

To get to the heart of patients’ experiences of care and treatment, we always ask the following five questions:

• Is it safe?

• Is it effective?

• Is it caring?

• Is it responsive to people’s needs?

• Is it well-led?

These questions therefore formed the framework for the areas we looked at during the inspection.
