A residential care home in Plymouth which provides accommodation and supports the needs of people with a learning disability and associated conditions such as autism and Asperger’s has been rated as outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

And even then the people of Hyde - among them the 3,000 patients registered to his family GP practice in Market Street - wouldn’t believe it.
