The owner of a Todmorden care home is appealing against a Care Quality Commission judgement requiring an improvement in seeking staff’s views when assessing the quality of service people receive.

Mr Barry Potton, of Pennine Lodge Care Home, Burnley Road, Todmorden, is appealing against the ruling on the grounds that he is based in Todmorden, sees staff regularly and a process involving both staff meetings and individual supervision and appraisal sessions is already in place.

The Care Quality Commission’s ruling followed routine inspections on January 8 and 13 to check that people using the services it provides benefited from safe quality care, treatment and support due to effective decision making and the management of risks to their health, welfare and safety.
