I had the real pleasure yesterday of being able to visit Eastbank Care Home to commend the team on being placed in the top 20 care homes in Scotland at the recent carehome.co.uk awards.
This achievement is something that the dedicated workforce at the home can be proud of and is a recognition of their hard work. Just like all care homes, Eastbank has faced significant challenges over the course of the pandemic. Staff really have gone above and beyond to deliver excellent care in difficult times.
This award is certainly something to shout about, which I why I tabled a parliamentary motion of commendation at the House of Commons and I was delighted to present a framed copy of this to the team on my visit.
Read the text of the motion below.
