Have your say

North Lincolnshire Council’s Community Support Team (CST) has been awarded the highest possible rating by the Care Quality Commission after an unannounced inspection.

The team was assessed in five areas: involvement and information; personalised care, treatment and support; safeguarding and safety; suitability and staffing; quality and management. Ratings are excellent, good, poor or adequate to compliant, non-compliant minor, moderate or major. The team received the highest possible rating - compliant - for all five areas.

CST is a domiciliary care service that provides support to people who live in their own homes. This includes people that have been in hospital, registered care or have had a period of illness. Staff assist individuals to return to as high level of independence as possible.
