NHS Scotland Chief Executive visits Goathill Development

26 September 2022

Caroline Lamb, Chief Executive, and John Burns, Chief Operating Officer of NHS Scotland, toured our Care Home and Extra Care Housing development in Stornoway for Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and Hebridean Housing Partnership.

This £32m landmark dementia-friendly development for the Western Isles is currently on site and consists of a single-storey 52-place care home and a 50-unit extra care housing development.

The care home incorporates shared facilities including communal day rooms, dining room, quiet room, barrier free access, and external courtyards for recreational use, designed to provide shelter from the Hebridean winds.

This is an excellent development that will make a huge contribution to social care provision.
