Ofsted officials who had carried out a survey at Mission Grove Children's Centre located on Buxton Road in Walthamstow have declared the same as inadequate as well as unsafe for patients, a recent report has unveiled.
It has been found that one being asked to bring reforms in the services being provided at almost 17 centers for children, medics tended to follow a wrong approach. On the one hand, they reorganized branches, thus forming clusters. While on the other hand, a cut in appointment of doctors was seen so as to see a significant saving.
The investigators from Ofsted have told that during the inquest the situation at the Grove centre was totally messed up. Undoubtedly, support services, leadership and activities as well as protection measures were not in compliance with the set standards of quality. But, the shocking part was the need to even clarify the in-charge of the hospice at the time.
While other centres have been found to be providing outstanding care, Mission Grove is having a negative impact on people getting services from it. Though, at present, the centre is getting itself integrated with the Sybourn and Low Hall branches. “The process of working more closely with two other centres is unclear to everyone involved and for some months accountability has been limited”, said the team.
