Statement from Councillor Ricky Henderson regarding care at home provision inquiry

Cllr Henderson, Health and Social Care leader for the City of Edinburgh Council, said: "This is a sad case and our thoughts are with Mr Gibson's family at this time.

"As soon as we became aware of what had happened the Council immediately launched an investigation to establish the facts.

"It is important that the ongoing Council investigation is extremely thorough and looks into all aspects of the care provided to find out exactly what happened. We will ensure that any lessons that need to be learned are taken on board and shared with partner agencies to ensure best practice across the care sector."

Anyone with any concerns can call Social Care Direct at the City of Edinburgh Council on 0131 200 2324 or e-mail the Council at
