Lisa Gardner, Service Director at Malsis Hall, (pictured) said: “We have created a truly exceptional specialist service at Malsis Hall and are delighted that the Care Quality Commission has now registered all our beds.
“Malsis Hall and its services have been received very positively by local commissioners. We look forward to working closely with them to place individuals who will gain great benefit from our specialist support as they strive towards living as independently as possible.”
Malsis Hall was designed to be a local service for local people and will be accepting referrals from local authorities and the NHS referrals within a 30-mile radius. It is working to ensure staff are recruited from the local area and aims to use suppliers from within the vicinity of the service.
