Inspectors rated a supported living service in Bethnal Green ‘outstanding’ in a report published yesterday.

Edward Gibbons House, which looks after men with health issues linked to drugs and alcohol misuse, received the top rank for being responsive and well-led, with inspectors rating the site ‘good’ for being safe, effective and caring.

“All of this means people receive a high standard of care, which is why I want to congratulate everyone at Edwards Gibbons House for achieving our highest rating,” said James Frewin, the Care Quality Commission’s head inspector for adult social care in London.

The watchdog does not regulate premises used for supported living; instead, the inspection over January and February looked at people’s personal care and support.

The facility in Parmiter Street received a ‘good’ overall rating in a CQC previous inspection.
