Care Quality Commission Rating: OUTSTANDING
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) made an inspection at Lindisfarne Court in Darlington on 15 and 19 March 2018 and we are very pleased to advise that the service was given an overall rating of Outstanding. The report is extremely positive and highlights good practice.
There are five areas to the inspection responding to five questions. This is how we performed in each of those areas:
The inspection was an unannounced inspection which meant that the staff team did not know about the visit.
We are delighted with this rating that has gone from an overall good to outstanding and recognises our commitment to providing the highest level of care and support to the people who live at Lindisfarne Court. We will continue to achieve this level and aim for outstanding in all areas.
