An investigation into allegations of lack of care and neglect at a Cornish care centre has led to improvements being made.
Concerns were raised four years ago by a whistleblower at the John Daniel Centre in Penzance which treats vulnerable adults. This led three staff being charged with allegations of neglect in 2013.
Today the findings of a review into the Cornwall Council run centre said measures had been taken to improve care, including bringing in new management.
I am encouraged by the improvements that have been made.The council's response also recognises that there are further improvements to be made. My role in that as head of the adult safeguarding board is to oversee that progress and to hold the council to account to make sure they do maximise those improvements.
