Constabulary to consider Abbotswood Care Home files

The Registration & Inspection (R & I) and Safeguarding Investigations into the running of Abbotswood Nursing Home have been temporarily suspended by the Department of Health and Social Care. 

Externally appointed investigators working as part of the R & I investigation, commissioned by the department, have recommended referral to Isle of Man Constabulary for consideration as to whether potential offences have been committed. 

In the meantime, all investigations led by DHSC that had been underway at Abbotswood have been halted. Once the Constabulary has considered the position, contact will be made with those directly involved.
