Nursing homes 'closing each week'

Nursing homes 'closing each week' Nursing homes are closing at the rate of at least one per week in England, due mainly to a shortage of nurses, official figures suggest.

It means the number of nursing homes and nursing beds has fallen for the first time in five years.

A total of 73 homes cancelled their registration in the first six months of 2016, the Care Quality Commission said, partly due to recruiting problems. BBC News
