CQC Rating Response

Each day we strive to provide the very best care and support, and put the safety, health and wellbeing of residents at the forefront of everything we do.

The CQC has a very important and valuable role to play, but we do not agree with the findings of this report. Therefore we have formally challenged its accuracy and ratings.

The standard of care and support we provide is recognised by the local authority in its quality assessments as very high, and we receive consistently positive feedback from residents and their families, 94% of whom have said they would recommend us to a friend in the last 12 months. Indeed, the CQC itself has very positively assessed the standard practices used at Prestbury House in multiple previous inspections, where we have a consistent track record of being rated ‘Good’ in all areas.

We are proud of the high standards of care we provide, and believe this report in no way reflects the quality of life at the home, which family members have rated as 9.6 out of 10 on the independent comparison website, We look forward to welcoming the CQC back to demonstrate to them the high-quality, compassionate, and responsive care service we have always provided.
