The Corner House, at Welbeck Street, in Whitwell, near Worksop, was found to be safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led when an inspector visited in September.

The residential care home looks after people with learning disabilities and autism.

A relative who was interviewed said, “the staff are absolutely amazing and I cannot fault them.”
