To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-12952 by Shona Robison on 23 November 2017, when it last met (a) Bield Housing and Care and (b) the key stakeholders, and whether it will provide an update on the plans that are in place for the residents.
Answered by: Shona Robison 20 December 2017
Scottish Government officials last met with Bield Housing and Care on 14 November and have since been in regular contact with their Chief Executive. I am due to meet with Bield Housing and Care on 17 January 2018.
My officials have also been engaging with stakeholders, including the Care Inspectorate and Integration Authorities, with regards to local arrangements that are being putting in place for residents. Such engagement will continue to ensure that these plans will enable continuity of services for residents at a local level with no compromise in the quality of care.
