Former care home boss refuses to comment after hearing

The former manager of a Caerphilly care home refused to comment as she left a Nursing and Midwifery Council hearing today.

Susan Greening was given a caution order after failings were identified at the Brithdir care home, near Bargoed.

Three other nurses were struck off, while another was suspended. The panel heard certain failings contributed to the deaths of some vulnerable residents.

He returns to action for his first appearance since late March. He suffered three concussions last season, but is now fully fit.
