'Good' News for Abbeyfield

Home » News » 'Good' News for Abbeyfield

Like all care homes, Stonehill House Residential Care Home (Abbeyfield) in Churchway is inspected on a regular basis by the Care Quality Commission (CQC ) to ensure that it abides by their standards in five key areas:

  • Safe
  • Effective
  • Caring
  • Responsive &
  • Well led

Inspections by the CQC are unannounced and last a full day during which time the inspectors look at paperwork, talk to staff & residents and make their own direct observations.

After the inspection the CQC inspectors also seek comments from staff, relatives & healthcare professionals.

The four potential ratings are:

  • Inadequate
  • Requires improvement
  • Good &
  • Outstanding

If a care home is rated 'Good' previously then future inspections are conducted every two and a half years.

At the most recent inspection in early January (published 1st February 2019), Abbeyfield Haddenham was rated Good. You can read the full report by clicking on the PDF featured on this page

Our warmest congratulations to Lindsey McGibbon and her staff
