The Orders of St John Care Trust (OSJCT) is very pleased to announce that The Cedars in Purton, Wiltshire, has been awarded a ‘Good’ Care Quality Commission (CQC) rating post inspection.

The home was recognised for ‘Good’ for services of safety, 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. The knowledge that our residents are happy and receiving the best possible care with individual needs being met.

Area Operations Director, Sam King, comments: “We are delighted by this ‘Good’ rating from the Care Quality Commission. The home has worked very hard to ensure residents are happy and well looked after which reflects our Trust values and commitment to the dedicated person-centred care we offer.”


Observations from the CQC report:

“Work was taking place to create an open culture where everyone, including people, their relatives, and staff contributed to decisions about the service. This included identifying what everyone felt dignity in care meant.”

“People and their relatives had the opportunity to attend meetings to share their views. We saw staff asking people how they were and spending time with them. Relatives were welcomed to join people in activities or to visit at any time. People had access to different communal areas including quieter lounges, a large dining area, and spaces for activities.”

“There was a varied social programme of activities and events. Good community relationships had been formed, and there was support from volunteers.”
