Annual Service Review Page 3 of 6 Service update since the last key inspection or annual service review: What did we do for this annual service review? We looked at all the information that we have received, or asked for, since the last key inspection or annual service review. This included The annual quality assurance assessment (AQAA) that was sent to us by the service. The AQAA is a self assessment that focuses on how well outcomes are being met for people using the service. It also gave us some numerical information about the service. Surveys returned to us by people using the service. Information we have about how the service has managed any complaints. What the service has told us about things that have happened in the service, these are called notifications and are a legal requirement. The previous key inspection and the results of any other visits that we have made to the service in the last 12 months. Relevant information from other organisations. What other people have told us about the service. What has this told us about the service? We received the annual quality assurance assessment (AQAA) when we had asked for it. We got good information from the AQAA. It was very detailed with clear evidence of how the agency has continued to provide a good service since the last key inspection. The manager tells us that she seeks the views of the people who live here, their supporters and views from health and social care professionals. The manager says that the most important involvement is that people who live here have face to face contact and that changes are made according to their wishes. Since coming into post the manager has recognised that people living here would like to be more involved in the local community. She has arranged outings and plans to arrange more. The manager has also held a vote about whether staff should wear uniforms, and people voted that they should, and this has been introduced. In the surveys returned by people living in this home, they say that they usually or always get the care and support they need and that staff usually or always act on what they say and that they usually or always like the meals served here. Comments from people include that the home takes care of all the residents and that the home has a unique homely atmosphere. One person commented I feel part of an extended family. One person said that staff are good company and another that they are allowed their privacy. A number of people commented on having a comfortable bed and having a comfortable home. One person said that they get personal attention. One person thought that they would like more outings. Another person commented that more outings had been introduced but that people didnt want to go. The manager comments that she is continuing to encourage people to go out and to enjoy the gardens. We have not received any concerns about this service in the last year. The home tells Annual Service Review Page 4 of 6 us that they not received any complaints in the past year. We are not kept up to date with all events at the home through notifications. We see in the AQAA that three events have taken place in the home that should be reported to us as notifications. However, we have not received any notifications from the home. We spoke with the manager about this. She has since looked at the guidance relating to this which is published by CQC, and has sent in the relevant notifications. What are we going to do as a result of this annual service review? We will carry out an unannounced key inspection, as already planned, by November 2010. We will inspect the service at any time if we have concerns about the quality of this service or the safety of the people using this service.
