Blood ser­vice con­cerns

The Oban Times - - News -

HIGH­LANDS and Is­lands MSP Don­ald Cameron has raised con­cerns over pro­pos­als to stop blood col­lec­tion ser­vices in Stornoway.

Fol­low­ing a re­view on ru­ral ser­vice pro­vi­sion, the Scot­tish Na­tional Blood Tran­fu­sion Ser­vice will no longer make vis­its to Stornoway or Camp­bel­town due to lo­gis­ti­cal is­sues and will re­duce the num­ber of vis­its to Lochgilp­head from twice a year to once a year.

The MSP has writ­ten to the shadow cab­i­net sec­re­tary Shona Ro­bi­son to seek as­sur­ances that the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment is giv­ing its full sup­port to the Scot­tish Na­tional Blood Trans­fu­sion Ser­vice.
