I wrote last August about the inadequacies found by the Care Quality Commission on their inspection of this small residential home  in Much Wenlock for adults with a learning disability and challenging behaviour.

Much progress has been made, but a comprehensive and unannounced inspection on 14 February 2018 by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) states that the home still “requires improvement”.

In terms of safety, effectiveness, caring and responsiveness it is now rated “good”.  But it is deemed to require improvement in leadership. Since the last inspection there had been a change in manager who was yet to register with the CQC. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run.

So, in summary, good progress, but still some way to go.
