The truths they don't want you to read....

Rural General Hospital

Thanks very much to the Health Board for the information which they have provided about the future thinking of Highland and Western Isles Health Board.

I've posted the "Remote and Rural Workstream Interim Report" onto the web, where it can be downloaded (2MB file with loads of graphics).

The meat of the proposals start at page 35, where the centralisation of service provision is clearly described, and the core services that must be provided in Lewis are also outlined.

Again, I haven't read this in detail yet, but ... the trend and intention towards centralisation seems clear.

The only people who have the power (and money) to stop this at the Executive, and if we do nothing it will happen.
