A centre supporting people with learning disabilities and autism has been rated “outstanding” by inspectors.
The Kingswood Centre received the rating after an inspection by health watchdog the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
As part of the body’s programme of checks on mental health provision, the CQC focused on the quality of wards at the Honeypot Lane centre.
After thanking staff, chief executive of the Central and North West London NHS Trust Claire Murdoch said: “This is welcome news for an impressive team.”
She added: “The centre makes a huge difference to a person and their family.”
