The Oban Times - - Front Page -

FOUR beds in Lorn and Is­lands hospi­tal are be­ing ‘re­con­fig­ured’ as ‘short-term as­sess­ment beds’.

The four beds have been med­i­cal beds, on ward B.

Ar­gyll and Bute Health and So­cial Care Part­ner­ship (HSCP) said it was re­con­fig­ur­ing the acute med­i­cal unit to build on the ser­vices that are cur­rently pro­vided to pa­tients from the hospi­tal.

A spokesman for the HSCP said: ‘ The in­tro­duc­tion of th­ese as­sess­ment beds will pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity for pa­tients to spend more time with the hospi­tal’s med­i­cal, nurs­ing and other as­so­ci­ated pro­fes­sion­als with­out the need to be ad­mit­ted to the hospi­tal.’
