Taplow Manor has been rated ‘requires improvement’ following an inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Formerly known as Huntercombe Hospital Maidenhead, Taplow Manor is a specialist child and adolescent mental health inpatient service (CAMHS). It also provides psychiatric intensive care units (PICUs) for young people. June’s unannounced inspection followed a focused inspection that took place in March.

While the provider’s overall rating did not change, the summer inspection saw its rating for safe drop from ‘requires improvement’ to ‘inadequate’. CQC has told the hospital to make urgent improvements to the way staff carry out observations and keep young people safe.

Deanna Westwood, CQC network director, said:

Taplow Manor has not fully met the requirements of the warning notice we issued to it in March, which is why its safety rating has dropped from ‘requires improvement’ to ‘inadequate’. We still have a number of serious concerns. We’ll continue to monitor the service very closely to ensure young people are safe and that improvements are made and fully embedded.
