NHS Western Isles - Press Officer resigns

Following the resignation of the Chairman of the Western Isles Health Board earlier this week, news has just come through that its controversial press officer has also quit his post. This came just 4 weeks after he came into it.

The Press Officer provoked a storm of outrage after making partizan comments against the sitting (Labour) Western Isles MSP, and saying that modern women expected a pain-free labour. This morning, the MSP issued a statement, saying that the appointment of the now-departed press officer had been an act of lunacy, which should be followed by more resignations. The press officer on departing his job said that the former Chairman, and the still present Chief Executive and Medical Director had achieved much. Apparently, the job of press officer had been converted into a full-time one and he would not be going for it.

Judging by the storms of protest that have been raging through these islands for the past few years against the aforementioned three, not many will agree with that assertion.

Is the Hospice issue being reconsidered?

MJC, I think all aspects of Health Board policy will now be up for review.
