At the 2019 AGM Dr Meg Hopkins M.B.E. resigned as Chairperson of Crossroads and Mr David Bleasdale was elected as Chairperson. Meg has been inspirational in developing Crossroads since 1985 and the Board are delighted that she has agreed to continue to serve Crossroads as a Board member.
The board regrets the resignation of Mr David Bleasdale as Chairperson in October 2020 but are delighted that Mrs Jennifer Brodie has agreed to act as interim chairperson until a new chairperson can be elected.
At the last AGM Ms Myra Watson was elected as Chairperson.
The 2018 annual survey of service users was carried out in May. Once again our clients have shown us how much they value our service with an overall satisfaction rate of over 95% of those who returned completed questionnaires. All points raised by service users, their families and carers have been given careful consideration and acted upon by the manager and staff where appropriate. We are very appreciative of the time and effort service users put in to complete the questionnaire. The results are valued by us as they can draw to our attention points which could otherwise be overlooked.
Colin McCracken of the Care Inspectorate visited us on Saturday 17 March.
This inspection looked at two aspects of our work. Again this was a very successful inspection.
There were no requirements or recommendations for change made
Quality of Care. We retained our top grade of 6 for Quality of Care thanks to the hard work and dedication of our carers.
Management and Leadership We received a 5 for Management and Leadership, the same grade as two years ago despite a large period of change in management over that time. Our new management team of Carol Black and Wendy McCreadie (photo) are to be congratulated.
very enjoyable coffee afternoon, attended by service
users, carers and Board members was held on Thursday
12 October at “The View” in Port William. This proved to be
an excellent venue. The staff were very helpful and friendly – and
the scones, fresh and delicious!
Congratulations to Becky Dalrymple, our Admin Assistant on her organisation of the event and her involvement with service users on the day.
Service User Survey 2016
The 2016 annual survey of service users was carried out in May. As
in previous years, we were pleased to discover how highly our service
users value the service, with an overall satisfaction rate of over 95%
of those who returned completed questionnaires. All points raised by
service users, their families and carers have been given careful
consideration and acted upon by the manager and staff where
appropriate, and once again, we appreciate the time and effort service
users put in to complete the questionnaires and hope that they find
the exercise worthwhile. We certainly do, as it can highlight points
which could otherwise be overlooked. The full report is available as a PDF here.
