Health Board saga rumbles on

Two years after a public meeting in Stornoway Town Hall, decrying the management of NHS Western Isles, another public move is afoot. As the Health Minister is due to conduct the Annual Review of the organisation on December 3rd, a petition is being circulated in the islands against the current management. Staff still appear to have no confidence in the management, in spite of the fact that the top tier was replaced a year ago.

NHS Western Isles continues to be in the red to the tune of £3 million, which is cause for grave concern. It is worth noting that although the Chairman, Chief Executive and Medical Director were all replaced in 2006, the Finance Director was not.
