A Rastrick care home that was rated inadequate by the Care Quality Commission has been put up for sale.

Lands House Care Home in New Hey Road was inspected in March 2016 and was inadequate in three out of the five areas the CQC uses to rate care home services.

Now the care home has gone on the opening market with commercial property consultancy Lambert Smith Hampton. They have the advertised the building as ‘former nursing care and residential home’ which is a ‘prime opportunity for residential development.

In the CQC report from March it said: “Overall, we found significant shortfalls still remained in the care and service provided to people.

“We identified six breaches of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014.

“At the last comprehensive inspection this provider was placed into special measures by CQC.

“This inspection found that there was not enough improvement to take the provider out of special measures. CQC is now considering the appropriate regulatory response to resolve the problems we found.”

The report also stated people and their relatives said the service was safe and it provided good, effective care. They also said staff were kind and caring and treated people well. They said that they felt safe from abuse in the company of staff.
