Blackpool CCG and Blackpool Council have been supporting Abbeydale Care Home to improve the services they provide. However, concerns have remained regarding quality of care. Therefore a joint decision has been taken to terminate contracts with the care home.

Blackpool CCG has a specific duty of care to vulnerable people and this decision has been reached with the health and wellbeing of residents placed first and foremost.

The CCG has worked with the Council, residents and their families to find new homes with the priority being a smooth and safe move with a minimum of disruption.
