A further drop in event has been organised in Blantyre to discuss the new Care Hub proposals.
South Lanarkshire Health and Social Care Partnership (SLHSCP) is holding another drop in session focusing on significant plans to modernise care.
Information will also be offered – and views listened to – on proposals for a brand new health and social Care Hub in the heart of Blantyre.
The information evening follows the successful public event on July 31. The aim is to give people another chance to come along and find out about the plans for a state-of-the-art, new-build facility at the site of the former St Joseph’s school in Blantyre, which is now subject to the normal planning process.
Val de Souza, Chief Officer of SLHSCP said: “Following a highly successful event at Blantyre Miners Welfare at the end of July, we are committed to continuing and building our dialogue with the local community – and indeed people across South Lanarkshire.
“Our primary objective, again, is to provide comprehensive information – and listen to people’s views – on both the proposals and the direction of travel of our Partnership.
“As we continue to strengthen many of community-based supports, increasingly, people who might previously have moved into a care home on a long term basis because of ill health and/or growing dependency can be supported in their own home.
“The ongoing programme of modernising our care homes and the proposed Care Hub concept seeks to build on this, offering people real choice and to live independently where possible and appropriate.”
The information evening will be held at Blantyre Miners Welfare on Tuesday 20 August 2019 between 5pm and 7pm. All are welcome to attend.
