Inspection carried out on 18 April 2011

During a themed inspection looking at Dignity and Nutrition

Patients told us that they were satisfied with the care and treatment they received. They said that most staff had treated them with courtesy and respect and that their privacy and dignity had been protected. They said they were given information and had been involved in decisions about their care.

However, some described instances where they felt staff had been abrupt in their manner and lacking in respect.

Patients told us they felt their nutritional needs and dietary preferences were well met. They gave mainly positive feedback about the quality, range and availability of food.
