Cambridgeshire Extra Care scheme rated “good” by government inspector - 21 Sep 17

A Cambridgeshire Extra Care scheme, which provides 30 homes for older and vulnerable people, has been ranked as providing a “good overall” care service by the government’s independent Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Bircham House in Sawston is owned by Sanctuary Housing Association, which outsources the scheme’s on-site care services to Axiom Housing. The care services are managed by Axiom’s in-house care company, Axiom Care.

The CQC conducted its inspection of Bircham House in August as part of its programme of unannounced inspections. The recently published report rated the care provision as “good” overall as well as for each of the five categories looked at in detail; safety, effectiveness, caring approach, responsive and well-led services.

Stuart Fort, Director of Operations, at Axiom, said: “Providing good quality care is fundamental within Axiom Care. This report is a really good reflection on the service we provide to residents at Bircham House and is a testament to the commitment and hard work of our care staff.”
