Welcome to the website of the Sleat Community Council, serving the people of Sleat, in the Isle of Skye.
With the easing of lockdown and for the moment life in Sleat beginning 'new normal' today is the last day of the volunteer prescriptions collecting and delivery service at the Sleat surgery. The community council thanks all of those who volunteered their time, energy and money in providing a first class service to our residents.
From Tuesday 4th August all patients or their representatives will be able to collect medicines directly from the surgery on Mon-Tue-Thu-Fri and a reminder that the Repeats line is 01471 844482. The surgery number is 844283. Prescriptions can be collected at the following times.
Monday 0900-1300 and 1400-1700
There are some minor changes to the procedures for collection from Tuesday.
- Enter the lobby by the main door where hand sanitisers will be available
- If there is nobody at the dispensing window proceed to make yourself known to the receptionist through the closed sliding window.
- Step back from the window whilst the medicines are collected from the shelves. Once the medicines are at the window which will then be closed please pick up the package/s and leave immediately
- Please do not return to the window unless absolutely necessary and ensuring there is no other patient in the main corridor
- If there is someone waiting in the lobby to go in please leave maximum distance at all times
- Face-coverings are strongly advised for your protection and that of others
- If you need any further information please call the reception team
Thank you for your cooperation and please everything you can to minimise any risks.
Message from the Community Council 28th June 2020
As many of you know the SCC usually holds its AGM during the last week of June ahead of the summer recess. The councillors assessed the option of holding a virtual meeting using MS Teams, Zoom or Google but it was felt that most people are really busy at this time, particularly the tourism providers gearing up for the 'restart' in July.
With the social distancing requirements in place it is still not practical to hold face to face meetings with the community at this time, but this will be reviewed at the beginning of September.
The work of the community council carries on as 'normal' and we will continue to provide information to keep residents and businesses informed during the ongoing pandemic. Issues such as the restart of CalMac's services, updates on health and social care, Highland Council news, roads and education will be focused on amongst many.
If there are issues that you would like to raise with us during this period of lockdown going forward please do get in touch via our email at email@example.com message us via Facebook or just add a comment on this post. We'll try to answer any questions as quickly as possible or find who can help.
We think that everyone wants to get back to 'normal', whatever that means, and all of us at SCC hope you continue to stay safe and well.
Updates on services, information and community support are available on our Facebook page here.
