Shetland's Viewforth House residential care centre criticised by Care Inspectorate

The running of a Shetland residential care centre has been criticised.

The Care Inspectorate visited Viewforth House in Lerwick - which looks after adults with dementia and mental health problems - in May and found weaknesses.

The report called for Shetland Islands Council to address the overall management of the care home.

Councillors have discussed the findings and were told by officials that an action plan is in place.
