Helping to Improve Young People's Future Care



NHS Ayrshire & Arran and North Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership are in the early stages of planning for a new national facility for young people at Ayrshire Central Hospital in Irvine.

Members of the public are being asked to get involved at the earliest stage to help us develop our plans for the new National Secure Adolescent Inpatient Service (NSAIS).

The new service is hoped to provide a service for all of Scotland’s young people who have complex difficulties and need a high level of care.

This exciting new development will provide the first secure adolescent inpatient service for young people in Scotland.

Interested members of the public are needed to help by joining the Public Reference Group. Members of this group will be asked to:

  • Share information within their local community;

  • Assist in the development process; and

  • Report to the Project Board.

If you are interested in finding out more or, please come along to an information event on Monday 6 August 2018 at 6pm at Fullarton Connexions, Church Street, Irvine, KA12 8PE.

To book your place, please contact Carol Craig by email: Carol.Craig@aapct.scot.nhs.uk or by telephone on 01563 826152.
