The South East Regional Health Authority (SERHA) says community mental health services at the Rollington Town Health Centre in Kingston have been relocated to the Windward Road Health Centre in the parish until further notice.

SEHRA says the relocation became necessary as a result of an incident which occurred recently where the centre's community mental health team was attacked and injured by assailants while they attempted to respond to a crisis.

The authority says counselling services have been provided for the staff affected by the incident and additional security measures have also been implemented.

SERHA is appealing to the public to cooperate with community mental health teams while they carry out their duties.
