Advocacy Services to be competitively tendered

Well, sadly, as predicted - Advocacy Services are to be competitively tendered :-(

And, rather bizarrely, the local Lib-Dem/SNP Administration changed its position somewhat from that which it earlier backed at the December Health and Social Care Committee ... I say bizarrely, as the whole report was only at this Full Council Meeting because Labour/Greens called it there under Standing Order 53?

And, despite claims to the contrary, I just don't envisage these changes 'widening access' to these vital services :-(
