A West Hallam care home, saved from closure earlier this year, has received a glowing report from the health and social care watchdog.

Beechcroft home was visited by inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in October who agreed it met required standards in areas including the care and welfare of residents, staffing and how the quality of the service is assessed and monitored.

During the unannounced visit inspectors talked to residents, family, visitors and staff.

The report highlights how staff are responsive to the needs of residents and respect their dignity and privacy and that residents and their families are happy with the care at the home.
