Melville, The Cost of Poor Care

Our report on Melville Care Home https://compassionincare.com/melville-house showed this home had been providing appalling standards of care for 9 years, We made a Freedom of information request to the Local Authority who were using public mpney to pay for care at this home. The cost 4.5 million pounds. The payment system is exposed as only allowing for over payments made in error to be recouped. There is no sytem for recouping the money paid to this home when the care has not been provided. Just as I suspected poor care is being paid for with public money. We are the ONLY charity to raise and expose this issue as with all our work we challenge the myths about the care industry to report the truth.
