Mr Blackford added that, whilst there is work to be done, there was a willingness from CrossReach to work collectively with NHS Highland and other partner agencies to make this happen, although CrossReach was unlikely to remain as the operator.
Mr Blackford said he was ‘astonished’ that last week’s announcement of the closure of Budhmor in a few short weeks was being announced without any consultation with the residents, staff, or the wider community.
A spokeswoman for CrossReach said the decision came after ‘strenuous efforts’ to map a way forward for Budhmor were unsuccessful.
