A CQC inspection found that the service provided by Healthlinc House in Lincolnshire is “inadequate” and that there are not enough staff to deliver safe care. The service is for people with autism and learning disabilities and has now been placed into special measures. Inspectors said that the poor staffing means that there is a risk of people staying in the service and becoming institutionalised. The organisation that runs the service immediately implemented a “significant quality improvement plan” after hearing of the results of the inspection and they state that these improvements are now becoming embedded. We hope that the service continues to improve for the benefit of the people using it.
