A mental health care home in Reading still requires improvement after its latest formal inspection.

Staff at Yew Tree Lodge told inspectors they did not have enough time to spend with residents and they felt they were not always supported when raising concerns with management. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) said the home had failed to made improvements that it had previously recommended in January 2019.

Yew Tree Lodge has three crisis beds and 13 long-term stay places, usually taken by people who need support while moving from hospital to community-based living.

The CQC said it would request an action plan from the company Partnerships in Care, which runs the home and will return to check progress.
