Background Info

NHS Highland has decided to close two hospitals and build a single new one for the area without assessing the medical, health and social care needs of the Skye, Lochalsh and South West Ross population. We have evidence that the design process and the public consultation that sought to justify its outcome are both deeply flawed. We believe that the proposed major service change will lead to deterioration in the safety and efficiency of, and equitable access to, essential health services and will have a significant impact on the sustainability of living in the North of Skye.

We therefore urge the Scottish Government to reverse its authorisation of the proposed major service change and to establish an Independent Scrutiny Panel, which would be charged with determining the medical, health and social care needs of the communities of Skye, Lochalsh & South West Ross. The Panel would then require NHS Highland to respond and amend the design based on the findings of the Panel.
