Finlay Carson, the prospective Scottish Conservative candidate for May’s elections to Holyrood, has announced that he will attend the ’Darataigh rally’ in Stranraer on Saturday 30th January.
Councillor Carson said:
“While I entirely understand the drive to get more mental health patients looked after either at home or in a home, there will always be cases that require in-patient treatment. It is entirely understandable that people in the West of the Health Board area want that in-care treatment to be provided in the West of the Region – i.e. Stranraer – and they have every right to demand that provision.
“So I will attend the rally on Saturday to show my support to the people of Wigtownshire on this issue – no-one should have to make a round trip of over 150 miles to visit a mentally ill relative or loved one when alternatives exist.”
