My husband’s 45 carers
Is the director and the senior managers of South Ayrshire Health and Social CARE partnership ( SAHSCP) holding internal competitions?
Competition Number 1
How many different carers can be sent to a client with advanced dementia? In a seven week period my husband has had 45 DIFFERENT carers.
So on my husband’s behalf I am proposing he is in pole position. Any advances from South Ayrshire residents on 45 different carers? Competition Number 2
How long does a South Ayrshire resident have to wait to speak with a SAHSC manager or receive a returned call / email?
SAHSCP now have a new Partnership. An all new latest technology advanced telephone system.
My starter is for 11 people queuing in front of me waiting on their call being answered.
Any advances from South Ayrshire residents on 11 people in front of you ? Stressed out carer.

Keep it local Why Costa or a Starbucks as mentioned by Martin Dowey ( last week’s Post front page).
Give local business first chance to open business before the multinational makes it all too similar, I’m sure many would love the opportunity to do so. Frank Bonfanti, Ayr
Monstrosities survive I have received an application form from the housing department to apply for accommodation.
This is due to the decision of SAC to demolish what is the finest communal accommodation in South Ayrshire.
I cannot express my feeling strongly enough about this diabolical decision to bring down these iconic buildings, when you see the square concrete monstrosities that will be left standing in the town.

Way too windy inside A dead cat story is one used to divert attention.
Quite common these days it appears. This week we are told Douglas Campbell is resurrecting his vision of a Scottish Blackpool with a London Eye on the Low Green! For sure it is way too windy for anything like that thereabouts but nowhere near as windy as it appears to be INSIDE the County Buildings. How long before the Dear Leader proposes a road bridge to Brodick I wonder? You can bet SAC will be consulting on it very soon! Enough already.

Some Monk ton apology I am writing in response to the article in the Post on September 11 regarding Persimmon Homes and Monkton.
Persimmon said they responded as soon as possible but this is not true. They are one of the largest builders in the UK and must have known there was a need for planning permission to erect such a sign but they ignored this process and erected it anyway. Only after objections were lodged by
Monkton Community Council, was their application submitted to erect the
sign that was already in place. This was turned down and they appealed it.
The appeal was also rejected. The sign remained in place. Only months after
this the sign was erected did they remove it but they had the cheek to erect it in another field. It is this second sign they were forced to take down.
Their complacency as one of the largest UK builders who are well aware of planning procedures is unbelievable. One wonders whether they see themselves with the power to flaunt the law and any processes or procedures in places.
They have a reputation of poor customer service with negative reviews of 55% which far outweigh any positive responses in relation to their new builds
and have been widely criticised across the UK.
This does not give residents the confidence that they will respect the existing infrastructure problems in and around the village of Monkton. I as a resident, do not object to new homes but the village does not have the capacity or the infrastructure to cope with it.
Having recent problems with flooding and sewage in our back gardens I urge the council to reject any plans until the proper infrastructure is in place to cope with any new build.
In the face of all of this the apology from Persimmons can only be interpreted as “tongue in cheek”. Helen Dickie, Monkton
Season’s a turnin’ I love this time of year in South Ayrshire.
