We are 94% compliant across inspectorate bodies, CQC, Ofsted, The Care Inspectorate Wales and The Scottish Care Inspectorate for residential care (Figure stated as at June 2020)
We are pleased to note, however, that CQC identified that staff interacted with people in a caring, respectful and professional manner, responding well to people’s care and support needs and that people are encouraged to take part in interests and hobbies that they enjoy.
People who were able told inspectors they felt safe living at Whiteheathers. Their comments included "I like being here, they look after me." With others, including relatives that the staff met their individual needs and that they were happy with the care provided. One relative told inspectors, "They're brilliant and they make a good team at the moment, just what my relative needs."
Our challenge is to ensure that we can consistently deliver and evidence that we are achieving the highest standards. The team at Whiteheathers are committed to every aspect of the services we provide being at a consistently high quality level. We look forward to welcoming the CQC on their return visit, at which time we are confident that improvements following their feedback will be evidenced.”
