People required to stay at Laburnum Lodge, in Breightmet, are full of praise for the care they receive according to official inspectors.

The intermediate care facility has been given a 'Good' rating overall by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Laburnum Lodge offers a step down service for people leaving hospital and a step up service to help fragile people avoid a hospital admission.

The facility underwent a refurbishment as part of the borough's review of intermediate care services in 2014 and people who stay there commented during the inspection that it was bright and clean with 'delightful' rooms.

Staff were described as caring, kind and hard-working.

Commenting on the inspection report, Bolton Council's Cabinet Member for Adult Safeguarding and Adult Social Care, Cllr Asif Ibrahim, said: “This is excellent news but hasn’t come as a complete surprise.

"We are extremely proud of the intermediate care services that we provide at Laburnum Lodge – which opened a couple of years ago as part of our intermediate care review - and know that the staff work very hard to ensure every person receives the best possible care and consideration after leaving hospital.

"It is always nice for them to receive compliments from residents and their relatives, and reassuring that the Care Quality Commission recognised this as part of their inspection.”
