Hartshorne home passes inspection with flying colours

Posted on 12 April 2011

A Hartshorne nursing home could be on the radars of people choosing a care home in future, after its kitchen was awarded a five-star rating from health inspectors.

The Nether Hall Care Home, which recently acquired a new cinema screen and greenhouse, was praised after the inspection and also received an excellent rating for its internal audit system, the Burton Mail reports.

"Inspectors also speak to residents and relatives, as well as testing the food, health and safety, supervision and training," manager Sheila Smith told the newspaper.

"It was very comprehensive, so we have been busy."

The new cinema screen, which measures eight by eight feet, will allow the home's residents to watch the upcoming Royal Wedding in grand style.

It follows reports in the South Yorkshire Star that a new housing complex for older people has opened in Goldthorpe, comprising 60 apartments for rent and a hairdresser, laundry, library and coffee bar.
