Huntercombe Sherwood in Nottingham cares for adults with learning disabilities and mental health conditions.

The centre has received praise for its ‘exceptionally kind and person-centered support’ from the Care Quality Commission (the body that inspects and regulates the quality of care in England) following an inspection of its services in May this year.

The inspection report, published today (08/07/19) sets out how residents at Sherwood receive excellent care that is tailored to their needs, with dignity and independence at its heart.

The CQC recognised the service as being forward thinking and proactive in its approach to people’s health and wellbeing. The inspectors also highlighted how many exceptionally effective interventions had resulted in significant and positive outcomes for residents.

Michelle Rope, manager of Sherwood Centre, said: “I’m so delighted the efforts of our staff, in partnership with our residents, their families and the wider community have been recognised in this report. I’m particularly proud that our approach to caring for people with respect and valuing them as individuals has been acknowledged by the CQC.”
