Evening Times - Glasgow: Carers' champion warns over bid to close centres

CLOSING three learning disability day centres in Glasgow could lead to a surge in the number of people being taken into emergency care, says the city's new council carers' champion.
Christopher Mason, who was appointed to the post after last year's elections, has investigated plans to shut Summerston, Berryknowes (Cardonald) and Hinshaw Street (Maryhill) resource centres. His warning comes in a new report.
If the plan gets the go-ahead, the remaining four council centres would be used by people with severe learning disabilities and places would be found in the community for the remainder.
