Care home inspections in York have highlighted worries about the state of services in the city.
A report due to go before city councillors today shows that some of York’s care homes are falling short of the national average when inspectors visit.
Figures from the Care Quality Commission show that off the York homes which have been inspected under new rules, around 52 per cent fall short of a “good” assessment – a figure which is higher than the national average of 40 per cent – and two have been branded “inadequate”.
The reports warn that only 26 per cent of York’s homes have so far been inspected under the new regime, and says they expect several more “good” providers are out there in York still waiting for inspection.
