The professional care team at St Michaels Court, Norfolk, are celebrating a new, improved rating from care industry regulator, the Care Quality Commission.

Previously rated ‘Inadequate’ the committed team at St Michaels Court have managed to turn the service around and evidence to inspectors the good quality care that their residents receive, in all five key lines of enquiry: safe, effective, care, responsive and well-led. Which has resulted in receiving a new official ‘Good’ rating.
