A Tayside mental health unit providing services to older patients from across the region has received a positive report from care watchdogs.
The Mental Welfare Commission for Scotland said staff at the Rowan and Willow Units at Stracathro Hospital were “positive and supportive” with their patients.
Inspectors praised the standard of paperwork, the environment of the care units themselves and the activities offered to the service users.
After reviewing the care of 17 patients at the units, the MWC noted in its report that “the relatives we met also spoke highly about the care and treatment they observed on visiting the wards”.
However, one recommendation was made regarding maintenance of the gardens on the site, which have some issues “outstanding”.
The MWC made its announced visit to the units at Stracathro, run by NHS Tayside, in June.
