The Older People's Commissioner for Wales says she welcomes news that an independent review will be carried out into the alleged abuse and neglect of older people at six care homes in the South Wales Valleys.
I strongly welcome the independent review announced today as the most appropriate way to ensure that the families get the information and the answers they have told me they need. I know that the families also strongly welcome the First Minister’s announcement.
I would like to pay public tribute to the dignity with which the families, as the ‘Justice for Jasmine Group’, have made their voices heard and in doing so have given a voice back to their loved ones, despite the grief and pain that for many of them is still so raw.
The review will be undertaken by adult safeguarding expert Dr. Margaret Flynn, who also led a review into Winterbourne View private hospital.
