  • Are not at risk of harm from unsafe or unsuitable equipment (medical and non-medical equipment, furnishings or fittings).
  • Benefit from equipment that is comfortable and meets their needs.

How this check was done

Our judgement

We found no gaps in assurance that may suggest people who use services would be put at risk from unsafe or unsuitable equipment and we generally found that they would benefit from equipment available to meet their needs.

User experience

It was not possible to gain the direct views of people who use the service for this outcome.

Other evidence

The provider declared compliance with this outcome at this location at registration with CQC in April 2010. The CQC QRP contained no information for this outcome. None of the external stakeholders referred to within outcome one who responded raised any areas of concern specifically relating to this location or outcome.

As part of the assessment of this location the provider submitted a detailed provider compliance assessment which explained how the provider was meeting the outcome. We found the provider had appropriate systems and processes in place that are required to meet this outcome with no identified gaps in assurance when this self assessment was reviewed.
