The Willows primarily is a dementia care home so most residents are elderly and particularly vulnerable. It also provides intermediate care for residents needing a short stay before or after hospital.
Health & Safety Executive representatives are meeting RBC officers this week. The Head of Adult Social Care is preparing a report detailing the chronology – expected to take weeks. Councillors, including myself, will be able to scrutinise the case at the Adult Safeguarding Board, the next planned meeting for which is 4 December (though it wasn’t clear last week when I received my briefing whether RBC’s report would be ready in time or if a separate meeting would need to be convened).
Update: The Adult Safeguarding Board meeting has been put back to 18th December.
