CQC investigates care concerns at Barchester home


The CQC has revisited Barchester’s Wingfield Care Home in Trowbridge, Wiltshire, after receiving what it described as “information of concern”.

The inspection came after Warminster woman Sue Snethlage expressed fears over the care of her mother Eileen Davies following her death last month.

Debbie Ivanova, Deputy Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care, said: “The Care Quality Commission (CQC) carried out a focused inspection at The Wingfield, in Trowbridge, in June 2017.

“The inspection was prompted by information of concern that had been highlighted to us. The inspection was also brought forward to assess whether the provider had made improvements following the November 2016 inspection, if there were ongoing risks to people that use this service and whether the provider was meeting the fundamental standards to provide high quality care.

“A report detailing our findings will be published in due course.”

The previous CQC inspection found a number of breaches of the Health and Social Care Act 2008.

Issues raised by the CQC included complaints over staffing deployment in the home’s Memory Lane building, which provides accommodation for people living with dementia.

A Barchester spokesman said: “We can confirm that the home had a Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection on 6-7 June. We await the results of the inspection and the CQC report. In the meantime we are focused on delivering high quality care to our residents; their health and wellbeing is of the utmost importance to us.”
