We served a formal Improvement Notice on Pentland Hill Nursing Home in August because of serious concerns we found on an unannounced inspection. The health, safety & wellbeing of residents is the absolute priority. 

We are not yet satisfied that the care in this home meets the standards we require, but have seen evidence of some improvement.

The block on new admissions remains. We require this care home to make further, specific improvements by the end of November, at which point we will reassess its licence to operate. The Improvement Notice remains in force.

We are working closely with the council and NHS to safeguard residents.

Our improvement team of inspectors and healthcare specialists in pharmacy, nutrition, tissue viability and palliative care  will continue to monitor the home closely to ensure that the provider delivers the standard of care to which every person is entitled.
