A care home in Haydon Wick has been given a top report by the Care Quality Commission.

Fessey House, which provides care and support for up to 39 elderly people is managed by SEQOL, the community interest company established 18 months ago to take on responsibility for community health and adult care services from the former NHS primary care trust and from Swindon Council.

SEQOL’s services include both Fessey and Whitbourne House care homes. CQC inspectors said: “We undertook this visit to follow up compliance actions that had been set at our previous inspection.

“The service had supplied an action plan detailing changes they were making to ensure compliance.

“At this visit we met with one of the two registered managers who ran the service and also talked with some of the care staff.

“We found that improvements had been put in place to the care planning system and also to the auditing of the care plans.

“We found that the service was now compliant.

“Personal care and support guidance was provided to staff for people newly admitted to the home and that person centred plans were then being subsequently developed.

“Staff we spoke with said that information was easier to access and record. ”
