**PATIENT ADVISORY NOTICE**
Patients at potential risk – Manse Gardens Amenity Housing, Strachur
Strachur Medical Practice has seen a significant rise in the number of patients attending the practice complaining of mental health problems they perceive as caused by, or exacerbated by, the current situation in Manse Gardens amenity housing complex, Strachur.
Initial investigation has raised concerns about a sharp increase in the number of residents allocated to the remote facility with complex problems, a reduction in warden support for the facility, and an exodus of low-disability residents who previously provided a balance of support for residents with greater disability.
Strachur medical practice is therefore issuing a public medical advisory that patients may be at risk in Manse Gardens due to system-related issues at the facility.
Strachur medical practice is advising patients not to accept offers of accommodation at the facility pending further investigation and resolution of any safety issues identified.
If any patients currently resident at the facility require additional support, or require medical support for their application to move to amenity accommodation elsewhere, or if anyone has concerns about the safety of a resident at the facility, please contact Strachur Medical Practice on 01369 860224.
