As chair of Angus Integration Joint Board, I visited the Saorsa Suite on Friday January 12, along with Beth Hamilton, another of my NHS Tayside non-executive director colleagues.
The Saorsa Suite in Dundee provides forensic services to people, mostly women, across all of Tayside who have been raped or sexually assaulted.
My thanks to Angela Cunningham, Justice Healthcare Manager, and Senior Nurse, Fiona McCulloch for an enlightening and informative tour and discussion.
The premises offer a safe, friendly and supportive environment with caring, compassionate staff to help at very traumatic times.
Thanks also to Jill Galloway, Chief Officer of Angus HSCP, who organised this, as we are the lead partner for the service.
It’s a privilege to be able to visit the services we provide and meet the teams – people who truly care about what they do and the difference they make.
