Bonnyton House campaigners welcomed west of Scotland MSP Jackson Carlaw to the care home this week in an ongoing bid for support in the fight against East Renfrewshire Council.

The Scottish Conservative deputy leader spoke to residents and their families, and to staff, about the possibility of privatisation for East Ren’s remaining council-run care home.

He said: “There are 34 residents and a team of dedicated carers and staff who don’t know if they will be here in the long term. Having spoken to the families, I understand their frustration at this lack of clarity.

“The standard of care at Bonnyton is first class. It is time that East Renfrewshire put an end to this ridiculously protracted process and treated all those that are likely to be affected by their decision with the respect they deserve.”
