North Yorkshire nursing home residents moved after care concerns

Residents of a North Yorkshire nursing home have been moved out after "serious concerns" were raised about their care.

Twenty five people living in the Royd Hill Nursing Home in Sutton-in-Craven, near Skipton have been moved to alternative accommodation.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) put restrictions on the home's registration following an inspection on 4 February.

The BBC has been unable to contact the care home's owners for a comment.

A spokesman for North Yorkshire County Council, which helped re-house the residents, said: "When concerns were first raised last year with the County Council and the Care Quality Commission, steps were taken to attempt to assist the owners of Royd Hill to improve the quality of care on offer.

"Unfortunately, despite our efforts, it was found that a wide range of care issues were not adequately addressed, and the Care Quality Commission removed the home's nursing registration."
