Government Inspectors Give Thumbs Up To Supported Living Service


A County Council supported living service for people with disabilities in Cambridge has been given top marks by government inspectors.

The scheme in Wagstaff Close, Cambridge, underwent a routine unannounced inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and was found to be performing well in all aspects of the inspection.

The service provides support and accommodation for three service users.

The inspectors looked at the personal care and treatment records, checked how people were cared for at each stage of their treatment and care, talked with staff and checked record keeping. The service was found to be meeting all the required standards.

The CQC report states: "The provider was meeting all the standards inspected. People experienced care, treatment and support that met their needs and protected their rights."
