A row has flared up in Nottinghamshire County Council after staff and residents of a care home found about its planned closure on Twitter.
Councillor Stuart Wallace, chairman of the adult social care and public health committee, announced James Hince Court, in Carlton-in-Lindrick, would be closing in September and the news was tweeted out by Councillor Alan Rhodes, leader of the Labour party in the county, despite the fact neither the staff, the residents nor the families of residents at the care home had been informed of the planned closure date.
Ed. It is shocking that the residents and staff were not informed first – how thoughtless.
