Savernake View care home rated 'Good'

Written by Tony Millett on .

Savernake View care home on the Salisbury Road has been rated 'Good' by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Savernake View is run by Porthaven Care Homes No 2 Limited.  The previous CQC report - published in June 2018 - rated the care home as 'requires improvement' - with doubts expressed about people's safety and protection from avoidable harm.

Inspectors who visited Savernake View at the end of July found it was 'Good' on all five of the CQC's criteria for care home services: safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.

The report says the inspectors "...received consistently positive feedback about the kind and caring approach of the staff team."  One positive note was that there are no restrictions on visiting times.

Savernake View can support up to 64 people.  At the time of the inspection staff were providing personal and nursing care to 42 people.
