COSLA RESPONSE TO BIELD CLOSING CARE HOMES ACROSS SCOTLAND

A COSLA Spokesperson said: "This decision has been taken by the Provider because of the long term unsustainable nature of the business model. Local Partnerships are considering how to ensure continuity of high quality care for residents in the different localities affected.

"COSLA has also called a meeting of the National Contingency Planning Group which includes Providers, Scottish Government, Care Inspectorate, IJBs and Local Government to consider any collective or national assurance and action that might be needed to manage the consequences of this decision – not least in respect of residents, their families and the workforce affected."
