At the Edinburgh Parliament this evening, the residents of West Ardnamurchan were given a public apology by the Cabinet Secretary for Health & Wellbeing, on behalf of the Scottish NHS, for what has happened out here over the last fourteen months. A further public apology, the first of its kind, was also given by the Scottish Ambulance Service.
A number of promises were given - amongst others, that advertisements would be placed for the staff, perhaps even a GP, needed to ensure that we would receive as good a service from the NHS as any of the citizens of this country. To ensure that this happens, Nicola Sturgeon will be coming out here to visit us and check that it's happened.
Furthermore, full 999 emergency cover will be put in place as of tomorrow. Arrangements will be temporary for the first few days, and permanent by the weekend.
Rosie, Jac, Davie and Jessie were congratulated on the presentation they gave, and they, in turn, thanked our MSPs - particularly Mary Scanlon - for the tremendous support we have had from them throughout this campaign.
Finally, Rosie asked that heartfelt thanks be expressed to everyone who has contributed to the resounding success of this campaign.
