Green Parks House passes muster with CQC

Green Parks House

Green Parks House (GPH) recently passed a Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection with flying colours.

Our Bromley based inpatient unit, provides services for local residents with mental health problems when inpatient assessment and/or treatment becomes necessary. The unit offers a range of therapeutic programmes including occupational therapy and ward based activities. It received top marks from the CQC - whose job it is to check whether hospitals, care homes and care services are meeting essential standards. Their inspectors visited the unit recently carrying out a series of checks and talking to staff and service users.

GPH was fully compliant in each of the six categories: respecting and involving people who use services; care and welfare of people who use services; cooperation with other providers; safeguarding people who use services from abuse; supporting workers and assessing and monitoring the quality of service provision. This is an extremely positive result and the inspectors made no recommendations for improvements.

Director of Adult Acute Mental Health Services, Trevor Eldridge, said: "This is a great achievement. I am really proud of the staff and this is a reflection of their hard work and professionalism. The most important thing is the quality of care being provided, which staff across Green Parks House have worked in partnership with service users to improve."
