Another Wiltshire care home found 'inadequate'

Wiltshire's reputation for caring for its elderly took another knock with the publication late last month of the Care Quality Commission's report on Ferfoot Care Home in Chippenham.


Ferfoot Care Home was given an overall rating of 'inadequate'.  It was found to 'require improvement' on its effectiveness and on caring for its residents.  And 'inadequate' as to safety, responsiveness and being well-led.

The CQC gave a list of improvements the home must now make.

A response on the Ferfoot Care Home website reads in part: "As ever, the constructive comments of the CQC are welcomed and, as reflected in the report, we had identified areas for improvement. We have an action plan in place and many improvements are being made."

Ferfoot Care Home provides accommodation and nursing care for 52 people.  It had 45 residents when it was inspected in September.

It is not clear how many residents currently at the home are being paid for by Wiltshire Council.  But in November 2016 Wiltshire Council paid Ferfoot Limited £98,000.
