All our learning disability services are registered with, and regulated by, the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
The CQC is an independent regulator for health and social care in England. It monitors, inspects and regulates services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety. They publish what they find, including performance ratings, to help people choose care.
Quotes from Southdown's CQC inspection reports include:
"Where people did not have the capacity to consent, decisions made on their behalf had their best interest and human rights taken into consideration. People were supported to make choices and decisions and have control over their lives."
"We observed that staff spoke with people and gained their consent before providing support or assistance. This was done in a respectful manner and it was apparent that people felt at ease in expressing their choice."
"We looked at care plans and staff records and observed levels of staff. We saw the service had enough experienced and skilled staff to meet the people’s needs."
