PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A care home in Warrington has gone on the market for more than £2 million after its closure was announced in the wake of a damning inspection report. Heathercroft Care Home, on Long Barn Lane in Woolston, was given an 'inadequate' rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) following an inspection in July last year. The report published in October said the home would be placed into special measures, and the most recent inspection said residents were "at significant risks of harm" with issues including inconsistent use of PPE and care plans not kept up to date. Ashberry Healthcare, which runs the home, announced the closure earlier this year and cited 'current challenges facing the sector' as the main reason. And now the site has been listed as up for sale by estate agents Christie and Co, for a price of £2.2 million. The site is described as a purpose-built unit containing 88 rooms as well as two lounges, two dining areas and two sitting areas. The closure of the care home will affect 45 residents and 70 staff members, with an indicative closing date set for June 30.

. "We recently completed a review of the home that considered what support is needed to move forward positively for the future, and what challenges and opportunities lie ahead. "Our focus is on the need to operate in a sustainable and viable way, and we sadly concluded that the current challenges facing the sector mean we are unable to deliver the type of service we want to, and to build a bright future for the home. "We have therefore made the very difficult decision to close Heathercroft care home. We know this will be upsetting for our residents and the local community, but we firmly believe this is the right course of action. "We are committed to working with residents, their families and our local health and care partners to ensure a smooth transition period. Our goal is to make sure all residents find a suitable new home that meets their individual needs and where they will be happy. "Our central team will also fully support colleagues throughout this process, and we will be engaging with them and their representatives over the coming weeks.” Top stories from the CheshireLive newsletter Here are the latest stories from the CheshireLive newsletter Mystery over how missing family pet turns up 25 miles away in Preston Royal Cheshire County Show confirms plans for return after pandemic 'Disgraceful' fly-tipping sees three sofas dumped on marsh Teen rescued after climbing to top of building and getting stuck Want to sign up to receive these stories straight to your inbox?
