Richmond Fellowship’s Winston House scores good for CQC

Our team at Winston House succeeded in impressing inspectors following a recent Care Quality Commission (CQC) visit.

Winston House, a residential scheme for 25 adults in Cambridge, was awarded ‘Good’ across the board following the unannounced inspection in November. Under the new inspection regime just introduced by CQC the service was rated on whether it was safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.

The inspection report, which has just been published, found that Winston House residents were happy with the care and support they received and that they had been actively involved in identifying their care needs and how they wished these to be met.

The high grade is testament to the hard work of the staff at Winston House who provide a warm and supportive environment for all residents making mental health recovery a reality for them.

Locality manager Barry Jones said: “Myself and the staff at Winston House have worked here for many years and we’re always striving to make it a more homely place for our residents.

“The report shows that we’re performing across the board and making mental health recovery a reality for all our residents, having such a successful inspection really cements that. I’m very proud of everyone.”
