Letters to the editor

Stornoway Gazette letters to the editor for edition October 1, 2015

We attended the third public meeting to consider the implications of the Out of Hours Service' in North Harris.

We both spoke at the meeting and feel our viewpoint and fears have not been taken on board. We are gravely concerned that our view and that of the vast majority of those who attended had their concerns nullified.

It is interesting to note that Dr Vijay Sonthallia, who was one of the architects of NHS 24 is himself, casting serious doubts on the system.

Targets are not being met, staff shortages are causing delays. It is our contention that the NHS 24 model has more credibility in an urban setting, where even now, attendance targets are not being met.

Wisdom teeth; rachel carlyle explodes 10 popular myths about children's dental care

We all like to think we know how to look after our children's teeth, but shocking figures showing that a third of children start school with visible tooth decay reveal we may not be as knowledgeable as we think. tooth decay is now the biggest cause of hospital admissions for primary school-aged children, according to figures recently published by the health & Social care Information centre. last year, 25,812 children aged five to nine were admitted to hospital for multiple extractions - that's nearly 500 a week.
