What Is The CQC?

An independent regulator of health and social care services in England, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) check health and safety procedures, rate the services provided by social care facilities and review treatment programmes to ensure that residents receive adequate care in line with government regulation.

The CQC registers, monitors, and inspects health services such as our rehab clinic to rate the service and ensure that vulnerable people who are receiving care are protected. They use information provided by patients, the provider, the public and other organisations to make judgements on quality of care.

The inspectors look to check:

  • Is the service safe?
  • Is the service effective?
  • Is the service caring?
  • Is the service responsive?
  • Is the service well-led (managers)?

What is Ocean Recovery’s CQC Rating?

Our centre is regularly inspected to ensure that clients receive an excellent quality of safe care. Ocean Recovery has been recently inspected – our most recent CQC rating (Sept 2021) was rated: Good!

Summary of findings included:

  • The service building was safe and clean, and staff adhered to infection control procedures. There were enough skilled and experienced staff to ensure that care and treatment was delivered in a safe way.
  • Staff received regular clinical supervision and an annual appraisal. Staff knew how to report incidents, were trained in safeguarding vulnerable adults and knew how to handle complaints.
  • Clients told us staff were kind, caring and supportive towards them. Clients were involved in decisions about their care and treatment.
  • Staff undertook or participated in local clinical audits. The audits were sufficient to provide assurance and staff acted on the results when needed.
