St Erme campus for people with autistic spectrum disorder

On 11 August, Barbara Keeley, MP wrote to the Chief Executive of the CQC expressing concern that a care home for 20 people with ASD, some of whom are under DoLS, has been allowed to remain open following an inadequate rating. The inspection report published last week includes a series of concerns including: ‘As a result of the low staffing levels, people's lives were restricted, and they were not able to live meaningful lives that included control, choice, and independence. One staff member told us, "People are effectively under house arrest.”’ The organisation that runs St Erme operates 18 other care homes for people with ASD.
