Care Quality Commission Report


A new report has found that Cheshire East Council’s adult social services are performing well.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC), the government’s health and social care regulator, published its annual finding this week.

They inspected adult services provided directly by the Council, or those services which the Council commissions from the private or voluntary sectors.

The Council was judged on seven areas:

  • improving health and wellbeing;
  • improving quality of life;
  • making a positive contribution;
  • increasing choice and control;
  • freedom from discrimination and harassment;
  • economic well-being; and
  • maintaining personal dignity and respect.

Noting 'clear and effective leadership that is driving forward the transformation agenda', the CQC summarised its view of the Council as follows:

Overall the council is performing well in achieving positive outcomes for people. During its first year the council has shown a commitment to transforming adult social care to improve outcomes for the citizens of Cheshire East. There are clear timelines for actions with clear risk assessments that are monitored regularly. These plans indicate changes in the use of resources from reaction to prevention and from managing conditions to active reablement.

Councillor Roland Domleo, Cabinet member with responsibility for adult services, said: “I am very pleased by the findings of this report.

“It recognises the hard work being done daily by this Council and our partners to improve the care we offer to our residents.

“We cannot afford to be complacent and the report has outlined areas for improvement, which we are already addressing.

“However, set alongside recent reports indicating that we have very high care standards in Cheshire East and that we are in the top three authorities for the delivery of personal budgets, this report is further evidence of our progress in Cheshire East in meeting the needs of older citizens and those with disabilities."
