“We’ve also fur­ther in­creased our fo­cus on staff train­ing and have re­viewed staffing lev­els to make sure that more sup­port is avail­able when it’s re­quired.

“We’re con­fi­dent that these changes will help drive im­prove­ments at the home and we’re work­ing closely with the CQC to pro­vide reg­u­lar up­dates on our progress.”

Any clo­sure would add to Kirklees’ so­cial care woes with an in­creas­ing num­ber of care providers say­ing they can­not meet CQC stan­dards.

Sev­eral homes have ceased op­er­at­ing in re­cent years as tougher in­spec­tions were brought in to boost stan­dards. The lack of care beds leaves more peo­ple “bed block­ing” in West York­shire hos­pi­tals.
