There are some exciting developments in the Bevern Trust and at Bevern View. I am pleased to say that our recent audit from an ex Care Quality Commission Inspector was positive. Our standards of care were held in high regard, however, the standard of decoration and administration systems that support our care, were identified as in need of improvement. We have already begun working on these to meet stringent CQC standards for any official inspection.
Along with the hard work of staff, and their commitment to Bevern View, Ashly has created the necessary Improvement Plan to document essential changes, now overseen by our Clinical Governance Committee.
The creation of a more homely environment has resulted in positive feedback about the refurbishment and I have really enjoyed seeing the transformation take place. We have also invested in essential IT systems and high speed broadband in further efforts to improve efficiency and establish new ways of working.
The money we have invested has mostly come from managerial/staff restructuring and our strategy is in place to raise more money and work with more volunteers to raise our profile for the benefit of all our residents.
I believe we have made positive steps for The Bevern Trust’s future and to support the loving care we provide at Bevern View.
