An investigation has been announced.

 

Health and Social Care Moray will lead the inquiry into the quality of care and support being provided to residents of the home following a number of concerns raised by the Care Inspectorate.

None of the concerns relate to any allegations of physical abuse or criminal activity.

Officers from Health and Social Care Moray met with representatives from the Care Inspectorate earlier this week to hear feedback from its recent inspection.

In response the partnership will conduct a Large Scale Investigation (LSI) under the Adult Support and Protection (Scotland) Act 2007. If the concerns are established, they will be addressed through the development of an improvement plan.

A spokesperson said: "We have begun the process of contacting relatives and will work closely with all parties to address the concerns and to ensure the on-going well-being of all residents."

Spynie Care Home, owned by Intobeige Ltd, will not take in any new admissions until the Care Inspectorate and Health and Social Care Moray are satisfied all issues and concerns have been dealt with.
