A Sheffield residential care home has won the praise of the Care Quality Commission.

Inspectors from the CQC - the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England - visited Midhurst Road Care home in Foxhill, one of nine sites operated across Sheffield by charity Sheffcare.

After speaking to both residents, staff and visiting professionals the inspectors rated services good in all five main areas - safety, effectiveness, caring, responsiveness and leadership.

The inspectors noted that staff were trained and understood their roles about how to keep people safe, with one resident commenting: “I love it here - it’s the staff, couldn't wish for better ones.”

Staff themselves told the inspectors that they felt comfortable to raise concerns and were confident incidents would be appropriately investigated and actioned.

They also said they were well supported in their roles, morale was good within the team and there were safe staffing levels.

Sheffcare chief executive Claire Rintoul commented: “The safety and comfort of all our residents is always our top priority.

“Once again I am delighted that the CQC inspectors have seen and noted just how much effort our teams put into the daily care of the people who are sharing their lives with us.

“Every Sheffcare home maintains the highest levels of support at all times and this latest CQC report demonstrates again how we work consistently to maintain the highest standards.”
