Staff of The Burnham Nursing and Care Home celebrating their 'good' CQC rating.


The Burnham Nursing and Care Home has received a ‘good’ rating by Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspectors.

The care home, in Oxford Street, was praised for moving from a ‘requires improvement’ rating following its previous inspection, in August 2016, to earning a ‘good’ score in all areas this time around.

Inspectors highlighted staff were ‘kind, caring and compassionate’ and ‘supported people’s dignity and independence’.

The home caters for 73 people and offers nursing, and personal care for those with dementia, physical disabilities, treatment of disease, disorder or injury.

Home manager, Raji Sunil, believes the rating is testament to the hard work put in by staff.

He said: “We are delighted with the report’s findings.

“All our staff have worked incredibly hard over the past few months.

“Their determination to provide the very best care for our residents is reflected in the positive comments in the report.”
