A Weston-super-Mare nursing home which was told it ‘requires improvement’ by a healthcare watchdog has had its report taken down as it awaits a review.

Lyndhurst Park Nursing Home, in Severn Road, asked the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to remove its ‘inaccurate’ report after it deemed the home needed to improve its safety, effectiveness and its leadership.

The home – which has been rated as one of the best in the South West by Carehome.co.uk – requested a review by the CQC after its bosses issued a challenge to the result of the initial inspection.

Owner Gordon Butcher said: “Much of the report is inaccurate and does not represent the facts. The CQC report has now been removed due to independent review.”

However, Lyndhurst Park did receive a good rating for its care and responsiveness and the report praised its ‘kind’ and ‘approachable’ staff at the home.
