asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is now satisfied with the consultation procedure carried out by Forth Valley health board in respect of its proposals in relation to 11 Randolph road.

My right hon. and learned Friend has been given a full account by the chairman of Forth Valley health board of the arrangements made for consulting local residents about the board's proposals for 11 Randolph road, Stirling. These consultations included the following steps:

  • a. The board sent a copy of the draft application for planning permission to neighbours inviting comment before its submission to the planning authority;
  • b. the same neighbours were invited to meet senior officers of the board to discuss these detailed proposals and interviews were arranged for all who responded;
  • c. neighbours were advised of the date when the planning application was being submitted to the planning authority;
  • d. the board has responded fully to every letter received from anyone claiming an interest in the proposal;
  • e. all residents of Randolph road have been invited to visit the Royal Scottish national hospital to see the arrangements made to train patients for discharge to the community and meet those chosen for discharge to the Randolph road house.
  • In recent weeks the chairman and general manager of the health board have met members of the Randolph road community group, and the board remains willing to discuss with local residents any details of the proposal which may still require clarification.
