- does not require the Nurse to live in West Ardnamurchan, and
- does not require the Nurse to be part of an out-of-hours emergency service.

But doing this, they slam the door on any chance of our having resident Nurses down here to look after the needs of this remote community and its many visitors. The Scottish Ambulance Service is left to carry the emergency can - and the last time they came down to a 999 call the ambulance took 1 hour and 20 minutes, and the helicopter 1 hour and 40 minutes.
West Ardnamurchan Community Council has written to all our MSPs and Highland Councillors, and to Nicola Sturgeon, appealing for them to do all they can to ensure that the advert is withdrawn. This will allow further consultations to take place after the community's overwhelming rejection of the Emergency Responder model.
Please lobby your representatives and urge them to stop the advert.
