Sanctuary Supported Living’s Southwood House in Wellingborough, received the visit as part of the CQC’s response to the pandemic, which aims to ensure that providers are meeting the legal requirements and regulations.

The inspectors commented that good practice was in place, and comprehensive checks are carried out with staff and visitors to reduce the risk of Covid-19 infection for people living at the home.

The regulator also noted that detailed policies and procedures are in use and that: “Staff had received training in the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), and we saw this was accessible throughout the home and staff used it in accordance to the most up to date guidance”.

Southwood House’s layout was deemed safe and allowed for rigorous hygiene practices including observing social distancing rules, space for regular testing and infection control.

We always place the health and wellbeing of residents first and I’m so pleased that the inspectors have recognised [this] first-hand.

Tricia Galloway, Local Service Manager

Tricia Galloway, Local Service Manager, said; “We always place the health and wellbeing of residents first and I’m so pleased that the inspectors have recognised first-hand the high standards that the team at Southwood House has maintained throughout the pandemic and beyond.”
