Shetland patient ferry transfers to Aberdeen decision may be reversed

Published

A decision to send patients across Shetland to Aberdeen for hospital treatment and appointments by ferry rather than plane may be reversed.

It would mean a journey of 12 hours by ferry instead of a one-hour flight.

Loganair has offered to cut the cost of patient escort transfers, and there has been a commitment from NHS Grampian to reduce patients called to Aberdeen.
