Care Commission threatens home over eviction notice

    Scottish regulatory body the Care Commission has threatened
    Private Nursing Homes of Glasgow with legal action after residents
    there were given less than one months’ notice to quit last
    week, writes Maggie Wood.

    The commission said the eighty elderly residents must be given
    at least three months’ notice of the termination of their
    tenancy.

    A spokesperson from the commission said: “We have written
    to the service provider, indicating that we require them to give
    three months notice to residents and that we will take legal action
    to enforce this if required.”

    But Al Guthrie, director of PNH said that the date of closure of
    the nursing home in Bearsden, Glasgow, and its sister home in
    Edinburgh, has yet to be confirmed. He added that the decision to
    close both homes is unavoidable given the level in reduction of
    funding available from the Scottish executive, coupled with the
    ever increasing regulations by the Care Commission.
