Gledholt retains ‘Good’ rating with CQC

The staff team at Gledholt

We are pleased to announce that, following an inspection on 17-18 December 2019, Gledholt has retained their ‘Good’ rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The service was rated ‘Good’ in all five areas – Safe, Effective, Caring, Responsive and Well-led.

Gledholt is an enhanced community residential service in Huddersfield providing outcome focused care for adults with learning disabilities, who may have behaviours that challenge and associated complex needs.

The full report (published on the CQC website) highlights many areas of positive practice, including:

  • Residents were positive about the care they received. Their comments included, “I like it here” and “It is good here.”
  • Individual’s independence, choice and control was promoted. They were also supported to maintain and develop their skills and competences.
  • Staff were knowledgeable about resident’s needs and carried out their roles effectively.
  • Residents were supported to eat a varied and healthy diet. They were given a choice of what meals they would like.
  • Individuals were supported to live healthier lives through regular access to health care professionals such as their GP or psychologist.
  • Residents had opportunities to join in with activities that were flexible and tailored to what they wanted on the day. Every morning, there was a meeting between staff and residents to plan activities and structure the day.

“We are delighted to see the commitment and dedication of the team at Gledholt has been recognised within the report. I would like to thank the team for providing a person centred service that empowers service users to have maximum choice and control over their lives.”Emma Shaw, Head of Care

Well done to Emma and the rest of the team at Gledholt.
