NEWS that the hospi­tal in Oban is to be able to give preg­nant women ul­tra­sound scans once three new posts are filled next year sparked a lot of com­ment. Yvonne MacLean posted: ‘About time! It’s scan­dalous that ap­pro­pri­ate ser­vices for preg­nant women is not avail­able at the mo­ment in Oban.’

Ju­lia Race agreed: ‘How can you have a ma­ter­nity unit with­out an ul­tra­sound

scan­ner, that’s dis­grace­ful, it’s not the 1950s.’

So­phie Maccoll asked: ‘ What hap­pened to the ones the used to have? there still qual­i­fied ul­tra­sound staff up there is there not?’ Ka­t­rina Mor­ri­son ques­tioned: ‘About time ... Wot hap­pened to the one they had tho.’ Rita Hargey added: ‘ What about the CT Scan? It’s a costly piece of equip­ment... with no ex­pe­ri­enced pro­fes­sional that knows how it work it... it just col­lects dust while we have to travel back & forth to the city... its a dis­grace!’ Jac­que­line Dou­glas wrote: ‘Now that’s good news for Oban.’ Marie Archer said: ‘Not be­fore time!’ Su­san Sum­mers queried: ‘ Why did they take away the one they had?’ Su­san Jean posted: ‘ You mean they don’t have one! Help!’
