Birkdale Nursing Home requires improvement (CQC Report)

ots-southport-nursing home

We carried out an unannounced comprehensive inspection of this service on 25th February 2015, at which a breach of legal requirements was found. This was because medication practices were not as robust as required and improvements were needed to the way in which medication practices were audited.

After the comprehensive inspection, the provider wrote to us to say what they would do to meet legal requirements in relation to the breach. We undertook a focused inspection on the 20th August 2015 to check that they had followed their plan and to confirm that they now met legal requirements.

This report only covers our findings in relation to this topic. You can read the report from our last comprehensive inspection, by selecting the ‘all reports’ link for ‘Kingsley Nursing Home’ on our website at

Kingsley Nursing Home is registered to provide accommodation and personal care for up to 25 older people. The nursing home is accommodated across two Victorian houses that are connected by an internal corridor.

A registered manager was in post. A registered manager is a person who has registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are ‘registered persons’. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run.

At our focused inspection on the 20th August 2015, we found that the provider had followed their plan which they had told us would be completed by the 31st July 2015 and legal requirements had been met.
