Enter and View – Activity Updates
HWW currently have 6 teams of fully trained and DBS checked volunteers to allow it carry out its Enter and View duties.
Our teams have carried out some preparatory visits to 5 care homes as a benchmarking exercise to allow them to recognise good practice.
No major areas of concern were recognised during the visits.
We are now preparing for a number of visits based on intelligence received from the Care Quality Commission and Walsall Council.
If you have concerns about a Care home or other Healthcare services then please let us know so that we can build up our intelligence which will help us to prioritise inspections.
You can contact us to register your interest or you can rate Care homes and other services you have experience of here
