the doctor had advised her to return to the surgery when she was experiencing the symptoms she had mentioned during her appointment.
Mr Prais asked her why she didn’t go to the doctor straight away.
Felicity described how the episodes “usually happened at the weekends” and when she had the opportunity to speak with the GP she was “usually feeling better”.
She said: “They told me they could only assess me when I was experiencing an episode”. AN ABERDEEN farm, which works with people with disabilities and mental health problems, was today given a huge cash boost.
The Easter Anguston Farm near Peterculter, which is run by Voluntary Service Aberdeen, has been awarded a massive £50,000 by the Aberdeen Airport Community Fund. The money was given out under the independent grant-making charity BAA Communities Trust, which was set up by the airport owner.
This funding will allow the VSA to completely refurbish their education room, build a new machinery workshop, and make other improvements.
The money will even fund the purchase of a milking cow to teach groups about where their milk comes from.
Farm manager John Duncan said: “This is fantastic news for the farm.
“The award will benefit so many people, from the farm trainees to the many visitors to the site, especially school groups and other children.
“The farm is all about education and training and the trainees and visitors alike will all have superb new facilities to help them learn in much more comfortable and suitable surroundings.”
