S5W-07223: Alex Cole-Hamilton (Edinburgh Western)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 14 February 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what action it can take to guarantee the day service at the Centre for Integrative Care.

Answered by: Shona Robison 9 March 2017

The decision to implement an ambulatory care model at the Centre for Integrative Care (CIC) will not change the range and type of services delivered. All therapies currently provided are available Monday to Friday, usually between 0900 to 1700. Therefore, the day service will continue to be delivered as at present.

I wrote to John Brown CBE, Chairman of NHS GG&C, in December 2016 to ask the Board to monitor the implementation of the move to an ambulatory care model over the next six months. I therefore expect to receive a progress report in due course.
