The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is an independent body that inspects, monitors and regulates care services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety. They publish their findings, including performance ratings, to help people choose care.
The fundamental standards they support and expect cover:
Standards of dignity and respect
Safeguarding from abuse
Standards of food and drink
Premises and equipment
Fit and proper staff
Duty of candour
All premises must display their CQC rating in an easily visible position
We are pleased to announce that the result of the June 2018 CQC inspection found Sydenham House overall Good.
We would encourage you to download or read the inspector’s report here to explore further the definitions of their fundamental standards and find out what they have said about Sydenham House.
