Summary of report content

Healthwatch Telford & Wrekin conducted an Enter and View on Hatton Court care home, a privately owned residential home with 58 rooms on the 18th of April 2017. This visit was arranged as part of Healthwatch Telford and Wrekin programme of work on Dignity and Respect in health and care settings. The visit is also in response to evaluations of feedback received from community engagements, and service provider / local council / CQC liaisons, and requests. Observation by the Enter and View representatives reported that: The home had a warm and homely atmosphere. Residents told us that living at Hatton Court was very good, and for their meals they had a good choice from the menu. The report highlighted the good practice observed during the visit and reflected the appreciation that most of the residents spoken to felt about their care and support provided. Nine recommendations were made in the report and it contains a response from the provider that addresses some of these.
