Kingston Court Care Home Awarded ‘GOOD’ Rating from CQC


We are very proud to announce that Kingston Court care home in Carlisle has been awarded a “GOOD” rating by the Care Quality Commission, following their recent inspection in February 2023.


Within their final report, which awarded Kingston Court “GOOD” across all five areas, the CQC inspectors praised the improvement in management since the homes’ previous inspection in December 2021.

The report stated “Since the last inspection the regional manager had covered the role of registered manager for most of the year and this had brought stability and consistent oversight of the service. […] Staff felt well-supported by their managers and there were effective working relationships with other professionals involved in people’s care.” The report also repeatedly praises the wider staff team, stating: “Staff promoted a positive culture within the service. They worked hard to provide person-centred care, which achieved good outcomes for people.” You can read the full report from CQC, here.

These extremely positive comments come at a very exciting time for Kingston Court, as acting Home Manager Kim Lawson has decided to step away from her role as Regional Manager at Mariposa Care to commit full-time to being Home Manager at Kingston Court.

“We are incredibly proud to have received such a positive inspection and to see Kingston Court restore its “GOOD” rating from CQC. We were delighted to see that Kim Lawson’s appointment as Home Manager was mentioned as part of the reason for the improvements and we are all excited to see how the home progresses further now she has decided to take on the role full-time.”
