A Sheffield care home has been placed in special measures after inspectors found its services were still inadequate.

Dalewood View in Woodseats has been assessed as inadequate in the areas of providing safe, effective, responsive and well-led care following a new inspection in May.

It has previously been judged inadequate when officials from the Care Quality Commission visited last December and a warning was given that the care being provided was ‘simply unacceptable’.

The latest inspection found that the provider, Roseberry Care Centres, was in breach of six regulations of the Health and Social Care Act 2008.

A spokesman for the CQC said: “The overall rating for this service is ‘inadequate’ and the service is therefore in ‘special measures’.

“The service will be kept under review and, if we have not taken immediate action to propose to cancel the provider’s registration of the service, will be inspected again within six months. The expectation is that providers found to have been providing inadequate care should have made significant improvements within this timeframe.”

Roseberry Care Centres were contacted by The Star in regards to Dalewood View but did not respond.
