NHS Western Isles - Health Minister's Visit (1)
Posted: Tuesday, 08 August 2006
I am curious to see the denouement. A clean sweep might be justified (in the Minister's eyes) by reference to administrative and economic efficiency of consolidation. ## Oh well, I hear some voodooism in the form of dolls and needles may have some therapeutic value. Others (in UK) swear by photos on a dartboard and darts. Here in the SW (USA), we have a penchant for six shooters and Wanted posters pinned to cottonwood trees. Kidding. Laughter is better than crying, after all. Medical care in NM - certainly in metropolitan Albuquerque/ Santa Fe - is pretty good, thank heavens (at least for those with rather expensive insurance). Best of luck to you all in the Western Isles.

I had no idea the Women's Institute was running the NHS down there in the west. They are usually terriffic (poss. in the true sense of the word) at running things. You're not getting mixed up with the Guild by any chance?

Dear Arnish Lighthouse Dont worry. Donald has great plans for barbecuing some of these people at next year's fank. He has worked out that in the poor light of early spring no one - especially with drink in them - will be able to tell the difference between a hog roast and a hag roast and with a bit of subtle spicing people will not realise they have just eaten theHealth Executive. We are still casting about for an appropriate wine if anyone has a suggestion

I'd suggest Cabernet Sauvignon Sante, Calum. Flying Cat: WI stands for Western Isles.

*oh* I didnae ken. Mpu only imagined her 5 year stint in the 'Silly Women Running Idle' then. It's not WI in Scotland, but SWRI, Arnish.

In the old days before BBC blogging WI stood for West Indies.
