The Arran Banner - - Front Page -

Mon­trose House, which has been forced to sus­pend respite care, has six out­stand­ing va­can­cies, it emerged this week.

As pre­vi­ously re­ported by the Ban­ner, the Brod­ick care home has a staff cri­sis with an in­creas­ing num­ber com­ing from the main­land and hav­ing to be put up in rooms at the home.

A spokesper­son for North Ayr­shire health and so­cial care part­ner­ship said: ‘Re­cruit­ment on Ar­ran, not just in Mon­trose House, can be chal­leng­ing at times and there is con­tin­u­ous work on­go­ing to ad­dress the sit­u­a­tion.

‘Mon­trose House cur­rently has six so­cial care worker va­can­cies and they are a mix­ture of full-time and part-time posts. Two of the va­can­cies are due to staff within Mon­trose House be­ing pro­moted to more se­nior po­si­tions, and sadly one of the other va­can­cies is a re­sult of a staff mem­ber pass­ing away ear­lier this year.’

The other three va­can­cies are the re­sult of staff turnover. In­ter­views will be held within the next cou­ple of weeks.
