Board thanks pub­lic for their opin­ions

The Press and Journal (Inverness, Highlands, and Islands) - - NEWS - BY CHRIS MACLENNAN

NHS High­land has thanked the pub­lic for par­tic­i­pat­ing in its three-month-long con­sul­ta­tion.

From Au­gust 20, around 100 meet­ings and events were held across Caith­ness with bosses seek­ing the opin­ions of res­i­dents and users of the care ser­vice.

Over 2,000 sur­veys were re­turned to the health board, which has de­scribed the num­ber of par­tic­i­pants as “pleas­ing”.

Michelle John­stone, area man­ager for Caith­ness and Suther­land and project di­rec­tor for the re­design, said: “Once the sur­vey re­sponses and all other feed­back is an­a­lysed a for­mal con­sul­ta­tion re­port will be pro­duced.

“It will in­clude a rec­om­men­da­tion on a pre­ferred way for­ward.

“The board will be asked to make a de­ci­sion on Jan­uary 29, when the board next meets.”

She said that in the mean­time, the project team will con­tinue to an­swer any queries and meet any­one who feels they have fur­ther ques­tions or in­for­ma­tion to share.
