Review of L&O Care Home

This review looks at the circumstances surrounding the closure of a care home in the Vale of York area of North Yorkshire in August 2020. The review looks at the period immediately before the national lockdown, the time from the date of lockdown until agencies were actively involved in responding to serious concerns around quality in the home and the arrangements around supporting people to move and the closure of the home.

The report makes a number of recommendations to the individual agencies involved and the SAB as a whole which are accepted in full. These actions have been incorporated into an unplanned care home closure action plan. This is a plan that incorporates any learning from care home closure to ensure learning is shared and informs ongoing practice.
