Totally agree, I spoke to councilor McCuish last …

Comment posted McCuish announces details of ‘team fit to build recovery in Argyll and Bute’ by Larry Nugent.

Totally agree,
I spoke to councilor McCuish last year about the deliberate exclusion of service users in any crucial engagement regards charges for service provision and he was shocked that there was no dialogue regards charges with clients.

I suspect the officers done the deal with well paid mangers in the voluntary sector and the commissioning team.If so, it’s absolutely shameful by Loudon.

Through ForArgyl, I again challenge Sally Loudon, Douglas Hendry, or Jim Robb (Adult Care)to a proper consultation in the Corran Halls with the appropriate councilors. True to form they have run away. Cowards!

I would urge Councilor McCuish to order a review of these charges immediately. I am being charged 75% of my disposable income.

    Thanks Newsie for the fantastic coverage. I feel disenfranchised as a Yes postal voter. People know I was a devo max and would have voted No if armed with that knowledge before I posted.
    With the end result I am happy. No sour grapes. Well done the Noes. Choking on my ice cream and jelly
  • New councillor, Neil MacIntyre, clarifies position he will adopt at council
    NEIL, Could you enlighten us about the format of this “meeting”.
    Is it a public meeting in which the general public can participate in all the discussion and hear all the questions and answers? Who will be the main speaker from TIf?
    Is it only an information day with just an introductory meeting with no set structure of question and answers. Who will record this meeting and when will we get a feed-back?

    I am led to believe That The Labour Party,and The STUC are also loooking at the Nordic/Scandinavian model of elderly care provision. I do support that.
    Taken you are having a go at me and other elderly people for stating what we need. I, personally will not allow you to think and decide on my behalf. Involve us. Don’t talk down as you are apparently doing.
    Posters know you could be a prisoner to Walsh and Loudon and fellow traveler Brother McCuish is not worthy of being part of an alliance with the aspiring Keiron Green and you. Have self confidence, we know you better.
    You have apparently sided with him on decimating elderly care provision. You are doing his talk. He has never apologised for his partnership with the Tories to do away with said provision. I ask or plead with you to take council matters seriously and not be flippant and frivolous when representing my party on For Argyll.
    Because of time of night, I will not be able to do this important meeting, I hope someone raises the extra congestion of traffic this is going to add to a ready dire situation.

    Paying any amount for a personal assistant out of benefits will be hard on any recipient. But that is not the real problem.
    Argyll and Bute council’s Chief executive department have a responsibility to consult with all needing council service provision. That includes meeting groups run and controlled by service users and to date in Oban that has never been done presently . Maybe carers groups have access to consultation and negotiation but not service users.
    You know fine well in large conurbations, consultation is encouraged but A&BC rural areas are totally ignored and inept councillors don’t want to know the needs of service users and leave decisions to fit into the chief executive’s cuts agenda.
    I believe there is a possibility of a link club (Mental Health service users group) being started up in the defunct Shop-mobility premises at the railway car park Oban. If it is organised along the same concepts of Glasgow as not just a tea and bun club but one that service users can express their needs and be treated as equals in consultation.
    I hope your good self, Neil and Brother Roddy can grasp the thistle and make sure things begin to happen for service users in Mental Health
