Castlebeck closes Arden Vale, a centre for people with learning disabilities and mental health problems

18/08/2011

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) said the company had agreed to close Arden Vale, in the West Midlands, by next Thursday. It is a home for people with learning disabilities and mental health problems.

Arden Vale was the subject of legal action by the CQC after it inspected the facility in June, which would prevent Castlebeck from operating at the site. The CQC said it had taken action after seeing "no evidence" of the improvements to care it had demanded.
