Part of the local Healthwatch programme is to undertake ‘Enter and View’ visits.

Mandated by the Health and Social Care Act 2012, the visits enable trained Healthwatch staff and volunteers (Authorised Representatives) to visit health and care services - such as hospitals, care homes, GP practices, dental surgeries and pharmacies.

This report covers our visit to Bridgewood House nursing and residential care home.

The home provides personal and nursing care to older people and younger adults, with specialist care available for Dementia, Learning Disability, Physical Disability, Sensory Impairment and Mental Health.

Up to 70 people may be accommodated, at the time of the visits 66 were in residence.

The home has 25 staff, including full, part-time and where necessary agency.
