NEWS ROUNDUP: Care service failures & good results all round for A level students
Serious failings from a Merseyside care provider have been revealed and A level students across the region are happy with their results.
A Merseyside care provider has been slated over huge failings on medicines and Covid-19. Care Solutions in Wallasey has been rated ‘inadequate’, the worst score possible, by the CQC after a recent inspection revealed many shocking problems with the service.
Care Solutions (Wirral) Ltd is based in Wallasey and provides care services, such as helping with personal hygiene and eating, for 78 people.
The report said: “One person told us: ‘When [new carers] come, they come blind; no clue what I need so I don’t feel so good about them’.
“Relatives said: ‘Many times a stranger comes, someone [who] has never met [them] before and there is no handover, no induction to the person they are coming to care for’ and ‘I have no issues with the regular carers but lots with other random people’.”
Although some people had established call times and regular carers, others did not. People who used the service lost out heavily from this.
A teenager has been jailed after repeatedly attempting to hit a police officer with a car in Warrington. 19 year old Tre Freeman from St Helens faces 40 months behind bars after pleading guilty to the offences.
The officer involved was not injured.
The officer involved was publicly commended at the sentencing by the judge for her ‘professionalism and brave actions’ during the incident, while also hailing her as a ‘credit to the force.’
Students across the region followed the national trend, reporting some of the best A-level scores ever.
David Hayes, headteacher at St Francis Xavier’s College, said it was important not to “shy away from how difficult the last 18 months had been for students as grades were awarded via teacher assessment.
