‘Peo­ple en­ti­tled to qual­ity care’

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Inspectors’ Damning Report On Care Home -

The Care Qual­ity Com­mis­sion last week pub­lished 99 re­ports of adult so­cial care ser­vices across the whole of the South of Eng­land.

Of th­ese in­spec­tions, 64 were rated as good, 30 as re­quires im­prove­ment, one out­stand­ing and just four as In­ad­e­quate – in­clud­ing Sev­ing­ton Mill.

Deborah Ivanova, act­ing deputy chief in­spec­tor for adult so­cial care in the South, said: “Peo­ple are en­ti­tled to ser­vices which pro­vide safe, ef­fec­tive, com­pas­sion­ate and high-qual­ity care.

“When­ever we find a ser­vice to be in­ad­e­quate, we will con­sider tak­ing fur­ther ac­tion on be­half of the peo­ple who use the ser­vice.

“Providers of those ser­vices should take the pub­li­ca­tion of the in­ad­e­quate rat­ing as a sig­nal that im­me­di­ate ac­tion is re­quired to im­prove the ser­vice.” To read the full re­port visit www.cqc.org.uk
