It’s shocking that Care UK-run Mildenhall Lodge care home still hasn’t improved enough to pass a CQC inspection, says Labour Parliamentary Candidate for Ipswich, David Ellesmere.
It’s now two months since the original critical report was published.
I can’t begin to imagine what the situation is like for residents of the home and their relatives.
Suffolk County Council should think very carefully about allowing any residents from Crabbe Street and Sidegate Lane to be moved until Care UK prove they can be trusted to run care homes in Suffolk safely.
Labour opposed the shabby Tory deal to hand over Suffolk's care homes to Care UK. We were right, but now Tory-run Suffolk County Council must get a grip of the crisis it has created.
