A care home in Glasgow is giving service users the ultimate say in defining their own care by involving them in the hiring of new staff. Staff at Munro Court Day Care Centre in Anniesland came up with the idea of giving service users a recruitment role when it came to appointing a new day care manager.
This groundbreaking initiative proved a huge hit with service users who were given the chance to devise questions for candidates and even to form an interviewing panel.
Brian Logan, Chief Executive at Bield, said: “It is fantastic to hear of services like Munro Court which are so led by the needs and wants of service users.
“Bield’s Free to Be approach remains at the core of everything we do, and Munro Court is a perfect example of how service users are given control over the type of care they receive.”
