The meeting insisted that representatives at the meetings with the SAS today and with Ms Sturgeon tomorrow emphasise that the sudden appointment of an ambulance technician be rejected: the process of appointment was improper, the community was not consulted, the employment terms - retained, on a 5-day week, with 3 or 4 days a month in the Fort - meant that he would spend little time in our area, and the skills levels were inadequate.
The meeting also expressed its worry and anger that the community has been left with no local emergency cover. A 999 call would bring a doctor along the peninsula in 50 minutes - if he is available - and the Strontian ambulance, which would take an hour. This appalling situation would be raised with the SAS at today's meeting.
Community Councillors Rosie Curtis, Jac Crosbie, Davie Ferguson and Jessie Colquhoun meet with NHS and SAS Chairs and Chief Executives today at 1pm in Fort William, and with Nicola Sturgeon at 5.15pm tomorrow in Holyrood.
