No reason given for care home raid


Posted on July 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

A special management team has been installed at a 40-bed nursing home in Gloucester, after the home was raided by police in late July. About 30 police officers and CSCI inspectors are reported to have raided Newsham House, owned by ADL plc, and seized dozens of records. The cause for the police action remains unclear, and it is understood that no formal charges have been made by the authorities. Four days after the raid, ADL issued a statement saying it had received “no clear information as yet to the precise nature of the investigation”. However, following discussions between ADL and the CSCI, a team of five skilled staff, including nurses, will work at the home for a period of a month to help and provide training for the existing staff. ADL plc has appointed a new, experienced manager for the home.
