A former Four Seasons Healthcare employee is facing a hearing over his alleged rough treatment and verbal abuse of a resident.

Ernest Byers is accused of alleged mistreatment of a resident while employed at the Linlathen Neurological Care Centre in Dundee in March 2017, which was at the time run by the Huntercombe Group, part of Four Seasons Health Care. The home has since transferred ownership to Lifeways Community Care.

Mr Byers is alleged to have “roughly or forcefully” handled and verbally abused a resident.

The former Four Seasons Healthcare employee faces a tribunal hearing on November 13 and 14 at the headquarters of the Scottish Social Services Council in Dundee.

A Four Seasons spokesperson told CHP: “The support worker left the employment of The Huntercombe Group, who ran Linlathen Neurological Care Centre last year, prior to his court appearance.

“We have robust safeguarding and HR processes in place under which we deal with any concerns about care of patients or conduct of care team members.

“The centre was transferred to Lifeways Community Care in July last year.”
