Oaktree House care home in Bristol under investigation

A care home for the elderly in Bristol is under review after concerns were raised by a whistleblower.

No new residents are being admitted to Oaktree House care home in Yate while the South Gloucestershire Safeguarding Adults Board investigates.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is also carrying out its own review.

A spokesman for owners Four Seasons Healthcare said they are "co-operating fully" and that it would be "inappropriate" to comment at present.

In a statement, the South Gloucestershire Safeguarding Adults Board said: "The board acted immediately to investigate the concerns according to established safeguarding procedure and has confirmed that there is no immediate risk to residents."

The investigation, which involves meetings with a number of the 80 residents, is now being carried out and is expected to take a number of weeks to complete.
