Main Topic: NHS – Single Site Facility for In-Patient and Community Services


The next Eilean a’ Cheò Ward Forum will take place on Monday 18th March from 2.00 pm – 4.00 pm in the Council Chamber, Tigh na Sgire, Portree.


Dr Paul Davidson, Clinical Director for NHS Highland’s North and West operational unit and Kate Earnshaw, NHS District Manager for Skye, Lochalsh and Wester Ross will address the Forum on the requirements for future provision of health and social care across Skye, Lochalsh and South West Ross and provision of a single site facility to include in-patient and community resources. 


Ian Murray, Chief Executive, Highlife Highland, will give a presentation at the beginning of the meeting.


Representatives from the Police and the Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service will also be present to give an update on service changes.


Forum discussion will follow the presentations and will involve Forum members, with Community Council Chairs representing the community view. 


There will be time set aside at the end of the meeting to take questions from the floor, and to address any public questions to the Forum.  Public questions should be advised in advance of the Forum in writing in order that informed responses can be given at the meeting. 


The agenda, and a poster advertising the Forum, are attached for your information.  We hope that you will be able to attend and look forward to seeing you on the 18th March.
