This week we have been reaching out into the wider community to engage with local and national issues impacting on residents and staff. Having a figurative seat at the table to share lived experience of our service users and staff is essential when services, systems and guidance is being designed, reviewed and improved. We feel it important to continue to use our voices to evidence where good outcomes are being achieved for the elderly, and constructively challenge where things fall short. So far this week we have engaged with representatives from Scottish Government, the Care Inspectorate, North East Fife Locality Group, Scottish Care and shared ideas and best practice with our social care colleagues across a variety of organisations. While St Serfs is a relatively small care home we have a wide reach across local, national and regulatory platforms to ensure we stay connected and inspired to providing the best care we can.
