The Orders of St John Care Trust (OSJCT) is very pleased to announce that two of its homes in Lincolnshire have been awarded a ‘Good’ Care Quality Commission (CQC) rating post inspection.

Digby Court in Bourne and Patchett Lodge in Holbeach were recognised across the board with a ‘Good’ for services of safety, effectiveness, caring, responsiveness, and being well-led.

As a Trust we are delighted by this recognition and thankful for all the hard work delivered by our colleagues to ensure this independently endorsed success. Equally importantly the knowledge that our residents are happy and receiving the best possible care with tailored needs being met along with a happy and fulfilling life met in the home.

Louise Kirk, Area Operations Manager for Digby Court, comments: “The whole team has worked incredibly hard during this last year to ensure residents are living in a ‘Good’ rated home which is a standard they all deserve. The report reflects the caring domain created by a very passionate and dedicated team under the strong and experienced leadership of the Home Manager.”

Area Operations Manager for Patchett Lodge, Gill Clark, says: “I would like to say how delighted we are with this outcome for the home and I am very proud of everyone who worked very hard to achieve this all-round ‘Good’ rating. The report clearly shows that our residents very much enjoy living here and our staff find it a really happy place to work in.”
