We are thrilled to announce that Chelston Park received an overall outstanding in our most recent CQC inspection.
This is of course a fantastic result. We are one of only 19 care homes which were rated as outstanding in December. In the Taunton area, only 7 homes out of 251 care homes are rated as outstanding overall.
As you may already know, CQC rate health care providers in 5 key areas: Safe, Effective, Caring, Responsive and Well-Led. Following on from our last inspection, where we achieved an outstanding in Caring, we have built on this success and now have an outstanding in Well-Led too. You need to be rated as outstanding in at least two categories – and good in all others – to receive an overall outstanding.
We are very proud of our staff. Your hard work and caring support of the residents makes this recognition by CQC possible. All members of the team will be getting new name badges to recognise this achievement.
During 2018 let’s build on our outstanding and continue to deliver and enhance the service for which we have now been formally recognised.
