An independent report into the death of 19 residents at a Sussex care home will be published this afternoon.
The serious case review into treatment of elderly residents at Orchid View in Copthorne will be published this afternoon.
The serious case review was commissioned by the West Sussex Adult Safeguarding Board.
An inquest last October into the deaths of 19 former residents at the home near Crawley found there was a culture of “institutionalised abuse”.
The coroner concluded five deaths were contributed to by neglect and all 19 care residents were given “suboptimal” care.
Relatives of the victims say the new report into the scandal must be a “blueprint for change” while Irwin Mitchell lawyers, representing seven victims’ families, have called for a public inquiry into care industry regulations.
The Southern Cross run-home closed down in October 2011 and reopened as Francis Court under new management in February 2012.
