Care workers rebailed

THE six care workers arrested over the alleged mistreatment and neglect of patients with advanced Alzheimer’s have been rebailed by police.

The allegations centre on the Hillcroft Nursing Home in Throstle Grove, Slyne-with-Hest.

Police were called to the home in May after a complaint from staff.

Five nurses and one matron, who no longer work at the home, have been accused of neglect, ill treatment and physical abuse under the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and Mental Health Act 1983.

The two men, aged 34 and 26, and four women, aged 26, 27, 53 and 59, have all been rebailed until December 13.
