Responding to revelations of “shocking” treatment of patients at the Carseview mental health unit in Tayside, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:
“These horrific reports suggest patients are being mistreated in a potentially life-threatening fashion.
“Restraint is supposed to be a last resort but the sheer number of occurrences shows that it is anything but.
“Experts and whistle-blowers have raised serious concerns about this behaviour. The Health Secretary must ensure that the complete report is published as soon as possible and that its recommendations are delivered in full.”
