A Winchester-based care home has been awarded the Care Quality Commission’s highest rating for its strong internal governance.
103-bed Sunrise of Winchester, which housed 81 residents at the time of its inspection in December, was praised by the CQC for its operation, with employees working within clearly defined job roles.
The report stated: “A robust system of governance in the community meant people received safe and effective care. Learning from incidents, accidents, audits and reviews in the community was shared and embraced to enhance the provision of care in the community.”
The home, which specialises in disease treatment and dementia, was rated outstanding in the effective, responsive and well-led categories and good in caring and safe.
The CQC also found that the home’s resident and their relatives thought the community was very well run.
A relative told the CQC: “What can I say? This place is amazing and [the manager] really knows her stuff. Nothing is too much trouble and they always have time for people.”
