Skye MSP’s (pictured) statement on Home Farm court decision.
Following this morning’s (20 May 2020) hearing at Inverness Sheriff Court, the constituency MSP for the Isle of Skye Kate Forbes said:
“As the local MSP, my priority is to ensure that the highest standard of care is given to the residents of Home Farm in Portree.
“I am pleased that the Care Inspectorate has taken such robust action, and will continue to monitor the situation.
“NHS Highland have already been providing support to residents in the home, and will continue to effectively run the home.
“The situation at Home Farm, where there have been 10 deaths, has been devastating for everybody in the local community and particularly for relatives and friends.
“Whatever happens in the long run about ownership, residents at Home Farm will get all the support they need in these difficult days.”
