There are wider questions for the Government on just how this level of neglectful care was allowed to develop unchecked – Barbara Keeley

Barbara
Keeley MP, Labour’s Shadow Cabinet Minister for Social Care and Mental Health,
commenting on the
prosecution in relation to neglect at Mossley Manor Care Home in Liverpool, said:

“The neglect and poor care of the
residents at this care home is shocking. With the CQC saying that there was ‘a
continued and serious risk’ to the lives, health and wellbeing of residents, it
is welcome that the owners have been prosecuted.”

“There
are wider questions for the Government on just how this level of neglectful
care was allowed to develop unchecked. The Government must ensure our care
system does not allow standards to fall to the level found at this care home,
leaving residents exposed to harm and neglect.”
