Young Mothers' Unit Inspection Success

YMU 'good' or 'excellent' in every category

Once again, the Young Mothers’ Unit has been awarded a “very good” grading following a recent unannounced inspection visit from the Care Inspectorate.

In all the individually inspected areas, the YMU was graded at a 5 which means in the 1-6 grading system it is considered to be “very good”, with the exception of the section specific to staffing, which was graded a 6, the highest possible score indicating “excellence”.

This report reflects the consistently high quality of the service which is provided for young mums and their babies.  The inspection covers specifically targeted areas e.g. Management and Leadership, Environment and Staffing and the inspector also seeks the views of service users and their parents.

Yet again, the staff of the YMU are justifiably proud of their efforts being recognised so positively.
