It is vital that we support our health and social care communities, as they support us, and this includes building long-lasting partnerships with Clinical Commissioning Groups and Local Authorities. We evaluate our services in partnership, to ensure the development of financially responsible and sustainable supported living schemes.
Northern Healthcare has a robust clinical governance framework, using independent mental health professionals to take part in a comprehensive and rigorous process of ensuring that our services meet the highest standards of the Care Quality Commission.
Northern Healthcare is registered with and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The last inspection took place on July 2019. Northern Healthcare was rated as “Good” in all inspection areas.
We create pathways that support individuals through residential supported living to community living, delivering measurable results for both local authorities and the people who use our services.
We believe in creating support networks to help the people we care for to lead fulfilled, independent lives. By working together, we can make a real and lasting difference.
The feedback received from residents, health care professionals and the inspectors during our CQC inspection was overwhelmingly positive. You can read the full report by visiting our resources page.
“People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.”

The challenges of the adult social care landscape mean that we must, as a socially and financially responsible organisation, work with commissioners to recognise trends and predict future requirements.
Northern Healthcare welcome input from commissioners and local authorities to ensure our services meet the needs of the people we support. This means that as a provider we must remain flexible in order to respond to the changing needs of our stakeholders and shape our service provision accordingly.
An open dialogue with our partners ultimately enhances the quality of care we provide, and we value input from everyone in our residents’ support networks.
Placements are usually funded through the CCG or local authority but can also be funded privately, through personal budgets or via independent case managers. We work closely with individual funding teams and can support with ensuring the correct information is provided in advance of funding panels.
