This unannounced inspection of Fleetwood Hall care home took place on 25 June and 27 July 2015. The home was inspected in January 2015 and judged to ‘inadequate’ overall. We identified eight breaches to the regulations. The provider (owner) agreed not to admit any people to the home while the breaches in regulation were being addressed.

Fleetwood Hall is a large care home set in its own grounds on the outskirts of Southport. The home is registered to provide accommodation for up to 53 people across four units. The units include:

• Female unit that can accommodate 14 women with mental health needs

• Andrew Mason Unit – a male unit than can accommodate 14 men with mental health needs

• Dementia care unit that can accommodate six people • A general nursing unit for up to 14 people.

At the time of the inspection 27 people were living at the home.

A registered manager was not 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.
