Health and Social Care staff have been praised by the council as they continue to source PPE to assist them in their efforts on the frontline of coronavirus.

East Ayrshire HSCP said: “We are so proud of the service our health and social care staff and partners Scottish Care provide to our residents. We are relentless in sourcing the PPE to ensure that we continue to provide safe care.”

Fiona Lees, Chief Executive at East Ayrshire Council, said: “Proud to spend time today with our Personal Carers. We will never ask them to undertake duties without the correct protection. Humbled and inspired by the work they do. Care, compassion and kindness every day.”


Scotland is in lockdown, shops are closing and newspaper sales are falling fast. We’re not exaggerating when we say that the future of the Cumnock Chronicle, and the vital local news service we’ve provided since 1901 is under threat.

Please consider supporting the Cumnock Chronicle  in whatever way you can – by paying just 90p for a copy of the paper, when you’re shopping for essential supplies for yourself and others, or by subscribing to our e-edition here.

Thanks - and stay safe.
