Melrose man’s complaints over dying wife’s care upheld

A council has upheld a number of complaints from a Borders pensioner about the day care services provided for his dying wife.

David Jamieson, of Melrose, told carers to leave his home after they failed to wear protective clothing when treating critically-ill wife Elspeth.

After her death in December last year he made a series of complaints.

Three were upheld by Scottish Borders Council, and Independent Living Services has apologised to Mr Jamieson.
