CQC publishes reports on care homes in South

In the past week the Care Quality Commission has published further reports on the quality of care provided by adult social care services across the South of England.

Under CQC’s new programme of inspections, all of England’s adult social care services regulated by CQC, are being given a rating according to whether they are safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led.

Reports have been published on the following care homes:

  • Dane House Care Home - Brighton and Hove
  • Oxford House Community Care - Buckinghamshire
  • Caremark (Eastbourne & Wealden) - East Sussex
  • Brendoncare Alton - Hampshire
  • Kents Oak Rest Home - Hampshire
  • Maypole Nursing Centre - Hampshire
  • Hartwood House - Hampshire
  • Westbury House Nursing Home - Hampshire

"People are entitled to services which provide safe, effective, compassionate and high quality care. If that is what we find on inspection - we give the service a rating of Good, or Outstanding. If we find that a service requires improvement, we will expect them to provide us with a full plan setting out how they will address the issue. We will share our findings with local commissioners, and we will return in due course to check that they have made the required improvements. Whenever we find a service to be Inadequate, we will consider taking further action on behalf of the people who use the service, so providers of those service should take the publication of the inadequate rating as a signal that immediate action is required to improve the service”

– Adrian Hughes, CQC's Deputy Chief Inspector for Adult Social Care
