Winslow rated GOOD by CQC

09 October 2019

A report published by the Care Quality Commission today rated the Winslow nursing home in Nottinghamshire as 'Good'. 

Winslow cares for up to six people with a learning disability and/or autistic spectrum disorder, providing a home-like environment via six self-contained apartments.

The CQC report said:

“People using the service receive planned and co-ordinated person-centred support that is appropriate and inclusive. People told us they were happy with the care and treatment they received.

“People participated in hobbies and interests of their choice and were supported to develop new friendships. Staff were positive about their role and shared the registered manager’s values in providing person centred, open and transparent care.”

Winslow was previously inspected in 2018 and this was a planned re-inspection. The CQC concluded that improvements had been made to its satisfaction.

Katie Fisher, CEO of St Andrew’s Healthcare said:

“I’m immensely proud of our Winslow team for delivering on the actions required to move the service to Good. Winslow provides personalised support for people to transition towards community living, and is exactly the kind of service that is needed in mental healthcare today.

“We seek to achieve high standards of personalised care in every St Andrew’s service, and never rest in finding ways to improve.”
