The following data represents the number of care homes which have been deactivated. These data exclude locations that have a published ‘successor’ organisation, where the service continues under new registration due to a legal entity change or a change in the provider. It may take several months for a ‘successor’ location to be published following a location deactivating and a new location arriving.

The following table shows the total number of nursing homes and residential homes which have been deactivated in Coventry North East constituency in each year since 2017.
