Jasmine House, west Reading

  • Type of service: Nursing and care home for up to 79 people aged 65 and over
  • Inspection date: 3 February 2022
  • Report published: 22 February 2022
  • Rating: ‘Good’
  • Key findings: The home’s rating has improved from its last inspection in March 2021, due to redecoration and new signage to make the environment more dementia friendly and safe for residents to move and navigate their way around.
  • Evidence: The CQC spoke with three residents, observed interactions between staff and people and spoke with seven staff members.

Moorlands Rest Home, Tilehurst

  • Type of service: Care home for up to 12 people
  • Inspection date: 10 February 2022
  • Report published: 25 February 2022
  • Rating: No rating given; this was not a full inspection but a special visit as part of a CQC programme to check how services are dealing with Covid-19
  • Key findings: The CQC was assured that the home was following rules and policies to protect residents and visitor, by measures such as giving visitors PPE to wear; checking visitors had negative lateral flow tests; checking that people had a negative Covid test before being admitted to the home from hospital; conducting twice daily temperature checks on residents and supporting essential care givers and family members to visit the home.
  • Evidence: The CQC visited and spoke with senior staff and a care support worker and also reviewed documents

Sk:n Reading, London Street

  • Type of service: a private clinic offering cosmetic or dermatology treatments
  • Inspection date: 10 February 2022
  • Report published: 11 March 2022
  • Rating: ‘Good’
  • Key findings: This was the CQC’s first inspection of the clinic. The inspection only covered doctor-led dermatology services, such as prescribing for acne, and minor surgery such as mole removal, because the CQC doesn’t currently have legal powers to inspect other services at the clinic, such as laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal, skin peels or dermal fillers.  Overall, the inspected services were rated as good for being safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led. The CQC recommended that the clinic reviews how it notifies the patients’ own GPs about treatment and prescribing of medication and how it informs patients that chaperones are available.
  • Evidence: The CQC interviewed staff, looked at paperwork and visited the clinic. Due to the pandemic, it couldn’t leave out and collect patient feedback cards but the clinic showed the CQC examples it had received.
