This entry is just to show another unpleasant side to the current management of the NHS Western Isles. I am not personally affected by this, and I hope that other Lewis bloggers who may know someone who is could put a more personal slant on this.

There is a nursery in Stornoway, named Little Teddies, which was set up for the benefit of Council and NHS staff. Staff could leave their youngsters there between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., paying up to £30 a day, depending on the length of stay during the day. A hot meal would be provided for the children.

Recently, NHS Western Isles, who run the nursery, have announced that the hot meals are to be withdrawn for reasons of costs. A rearrangement of the pricing structure is also in the offing. When a meeting was called to discuss concerns of users on both issues, nobody from the senior management of the NHS bothered to turn up to listen. Those who did attend, were (in the words of one attendee) clearly set up to take the flak for the management.

Draw your own conclusions.

NHS issues aside shouldn't you be having early nights in preparation for the Fank. Some of these Arran women can be very demanding and you won't be at your best if you're on your computer in the small hours. I was in bed before Emmerdale finished last night.

Emmerdale is as good a sopophoric as anything I've heard of, Calumannabel. You still having problems with reception from the Rockall transmitter?
