Following the announcement several issues ago that we had been awarded the contract to provide GP services at the Rhinns Medical Practice, we have been working hard to ensure that we are ready to assume responsibility for the care of patients across the whole Island from the 1st November 2014.  This recent work follows on from 18 months of meetings and public consultation as part of the Islay Review.  We are aware that there has been a significant amount of anxiety regarding the future of the health service on Islay and we wanted to take this opportunity to address some of your concerns and provide reassurance where we can.  We thought the best way to do this was to give answers to some of the questions which we are asked by patients and staff.
