Assurance Over Care at Cornish Home
3:52pm 12th May 2014
Families are told the care and treatment at a Cornish mental health unit closed over safety issues hasn't been compromised.
A refurbishment revealed the roof at Longreach in Redruth has never been fireproofed properly.
Now health bosses are sorting other accommodation in Bodmin and Plymouth for patients.
Eugiene Yafele from the NHS Partnership Foundation Trust admits moving people is not ideal.
He said: "We want to ensure that they go to the most appropriate environment to care for them, and we will ensure that carers are able to visit and will be reimbursed for any costs during this time.
"The trust would like to assure families that the treatment and care that patients have been receiving at Longreach House has not at all been compromised, we have identified this fault with the building as part of our process to improve the patient environment."3:52pm 12th May 2014
