CQC ‘GOOD’ News

What did the CQC Inspectors find when they inspected us in March and April this year? ‘Throughout the time the inspection team was at The Marbrook Centre we saw that staff and people living / staying at the home interacted well with each other and had warm, caring relationships. There was lots of fun and laughter as well as appropriate banter that people clearly enjoyed.

An outsider’s perspective

Winning awards is obviously lovely, but the judges’ comments on our most recent award gave us an outsider’s perspective to what ‘team Marbrook’ feels like from a carer or family members view. This all started with us winning the Carers Trust ‘Carer Friendly Employer award’. It was their comments about the warmth of the reception staff, the fresh homemade pastries, and the general willingness to help visitors by everyone here, whatever their role. This is the caring ethos we set out to achieve when we opened a year ago, but...
