George Springall Homecare Partnership was recently inspected by the CQC.

The CQC are the independent regulator of health and social care in England.

Visiting services is an important part of the CQC inspection process. It gives the CQC inspector the opportunity to talk to the Registered Manager, staff and people who use the service.

 

Carrying out site visits also allows the CQC to observe care and to look at people's records to see how their needs are managed.

 

There are five questions the CQC ask of all care services. They're at the heart of the way they regulate and they help the CQC to make sure we focus on the things that matter to people.

1.Are they safe?

2.Are they effective?

3.Are they caring?

4.Are they responsive to people's needs?

5.Are they well-led?

 

It is with great pride that we announce that we have been given a rating of Overall Outstanding!

This is an amazing achievement that you should all be extremely proud to be a part of.

Not only did we achieve Overall Outstanding but George Springall Homecare Partnership is only the second Homecare Agency in Oxfordshire to receive this rating! We are also the first Homecare Agency in Oxfordshire to ever receive the rating of Overall Outstanding on their first CQC inspection!

 

When we decided to register George Springall Homecare Partnership with the CQC it was our objective to make a difference and to offer the best care available in Oxfordshire. To receive a rating of Overall Outstanding has proven without doubt that we have met our objective and satisfied the CQC in all aspects of care and management.

 

We would like to thank Rachel Bird, our Executive Administrator, for her endless commitment and hard work towards being CQC compliant. Rachel has a passion for not only doing everything by the book but for the company itself! We are very thankful for everything she does.

 

We would like to thank all of the company's Seniors and Care Workers for continuously striving to deliver the best care available and for representing the company's values within the community. We would like to inform you that Caring under the CQC inspection was awarded Outstanding! We worked hard to present the evidence required to achieve this rating. Congratulations to all of you! You all deserve it!

 

All our company's and carer's hard work for the last year and a half and this amazing Outstanding rating honored the memory of our beloved George Springall in the most wonderful way. I am sure he looks down on us smiling and if he was with us today he would be very proud of all of you.

 

The CQC will be releasing our Outstanding rating to the press and the official report will be published on the CQC website shortly.

Oxfordshire City Council Press Release 23/08/2017

A home care provider in Oxfordshire has been rated as “Outstanding” by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), confirming that the county is ahead of national averages.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

George Springall Homecare is a domiciliary care (home care) agency providing support and care to people in their own homes in the South Oxfordshire area - currently with clients in Wallingford, Botley, Steventon, Shippon, Standlake, Abingdon and Berinsfield.

 

Following an inspection earlier this year it has been given the CQC’s top rating of “Outstanding” – which is rarely awarded. The other possible ratings following an inspection are “Good”, “requires improvement” or “inadequate”.

 

The award means that Oxfordshire is now better than the national average for “Oustanding” domiciliary care agencies with three per cent given the top rating locally compared to two per cent nationally. A total of 86 per cent of local agencies are rated “good” compared to 82 per cent nationally.

 

Councillor Lawrie Stratford, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, said: “The role of home care both here in Oxfordshire and elsewhere in the country has increased hugely in recent years.

 

“As such, as a council, we pay ever more attention to the CQC’s inspection results. It is pleasing to see that we are ahead of the national picture and this excellent result for the George Springall Partnership confirms that. My congratulations go to them on an excellent report that paints a picture of diligent and caring work that goes the extra mile for the people receiving care.”

 

What did the CQC report say?

 

The report said: “The service was extremely responsive to supporting people whose needs were complex and tended to change. We were repeatedly told of numerous occasions where the service had gone above and beyond of what was expected of them.

 

“People and relatives were delighted with the kindness and thoughtfulness of staff, which exceeded their expectations of how they would be cared for and supported. People explained how staff went the extra mile for them and assured us they couldn't ask for anything more. People told us the support they received significantly improved their well-being.

 

“People's relatives told us that the service went above their contractual duties by providing their loved ones with end of life care. The relatives said staff helped them to put their minds at ease and get through the difficult time. The provider's philosophy, vision and values were understood and shared within the staff team.

 

“The service was extremely responsive to people's needs and wishes even if the support people needed proved to exceed their contracted hours. People told us that staff went over and above the call of duty. People also said this made a profound difference to their lives.”

 

''Roxane Schatara the Registered Manager/Owner of George Springall said: “This amazing “Outstanding” rating honoured the memory of our beloved George Springall in the most wonderful way. We are extremely proud to be a part of this. We have a brilliant team that represents the company's values and culture within the community.''
