Following an unannounced visit from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) Edenvale Nursing Home in Waterlooville maintained its overall rating from its last inspection.

The CQC report voiced concerns about staffing. It said: ‘We received mixed views about staffing from people and their relatives and about how much time staff had to support people.

‘Most people felt there were enough staff in general but felt at weekends they were short staffed.’
