Stanley House, our neurological care centre in Ledbury Herefordshire, has retained their Approved Provider status as part of Headway’s Approved Provider Scheme and will continue to hold this status until 2021.
The process of Headway’s Approved Provider Scheme involves units signing off a statement of compliance against each required standard and undergoing a robust on-site assessment, within an inspection system that also involves unannounced interim reviews.
This process ensures that units gaining Approved Provider status can demonstrate their provision of appropriate specialist care for those with complex, physical and/or cognitive impairment due to acquired brain injury. Key aspects of the process include ensuring staff working in the unit are aware of and responsive to issues associated with ABI, and that the unit gives consideration to the information and other needs of the service user, their family and carers.
‘The strengths noted at the re-accreditation assessment have been maintained. The unit continues to present as a bright, well maintained and happy home. The evidence of interactions between staff and clients during this visit is now rated as Excellent’.
