Abbots Care Buckinghamshire celebrates CQC Inspection
Abbots Care Buckinghamshire achieves “Good” rating by The Care Quality Commission (CQC)
Our Buckinghamshire branch has recently undergone a rigorous inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) for the first time and we are happy to report we have secured a well-deserved rating of “Good”! We are absolutely thrilled with this remarkable achievement, as it marks a significant milestone for Abbots Care.
With our Dorset branch already boasting a “Good” rating and our Hertfordshire branch proudly holding an “Outstanding” rating, this accomplishment means that all our locations have now been inspected and received fantastic results.
What does it mean to be rated as a ‘Good’ provider by CQC?
When a care service is rated as ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), it means that the service is performing well and meeting the regulatory expectations. For home care, a ‘Good’ rating signifies that the service is delivering good care, meeting the national standards, and performing well in areas such as person-centred care, dignity, respect, and responsiveness to people’s needs.
In order to receive a ‘Good’ rating, a service must demonstrate that it provides care that is tailored to the individual’s needs and preferences, as well as treating them with compassion, kindness, dignity, and respect.
It is important to note that the CQC uses a set of key questions in their assessments, such as whether the service is safe, effective, caring, responsive, and well-led. These questions help determine the overall rating of the service. We are over the moon to have achieved “Good” in all 5 of these areas, this is a huge testament to the Buckinghamshire team.
