Cheshire East leading the way in adult social care


Cheshire East Council is one of the leading authorities in the North West at encouraging and supporting the delivery of adult social care services, according to a new report.

The findings, by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), were based on a study of the quality of care services purchased by Councils across the country.

The Council delivers its care via a range of providers such as privately run businesses, charitable organisations.

CQC, the Government’s health and social care regulator, found that 100 per cent of the 2,393 home care users in Cheshire East receive ‘excellent’ or ‘good’ care, as rated by its inspection earlier this year.

It also shows that 93 per cent of the 1,558 people being supported in care homes receive the same level of care, which is higher than the North West average of 89 per cent.

These figures also compare favourably on a national scale.

Councillor Roland Domleo, Cabinet member with responsibility for adult services, said: “This report uses 2009 information to arrive at percentages of care home residents and home care users receiving services that had been inspected by CQC rated as ‘excellent’ or ‘good’.

“The services operating within the Council area need to be of a high quality for customers when they need to use them.

“The report cites Cheshire East alongside other Councils’ performance and shows that we are performing well. But importantly we are not complacent about this and, together with service providers, customers their relatives and friends we will continue to strive for improvement.”

There are 107 establishments which were awarded either two stars or the maximum three stars following unannounced inspections in May 2010.
