Kendal Care Home Still Rated Inadequate By CQC

Kendal's Heron Hill Care Home has failed to improve its "inadequate" rating by the CQC.

Care Quality Commission inspectors first labelled the Esthwaite Avenue site inadequate in December - and have done the same following three further inspections.

While improvements were noted, the home still got the lowest rankings for safety and effectiveness.

The people who run it - Abbey Healthcare - admit further work's required but that new management was in place.

The CQC will return with more surprise and scheduled visits over the next few months.
