Andrew Walker started this petition to Community Councils Uists

Since October 2016 the Ingegrated Joint Board, H & SC has resisted all Community views on relocating three Community dental practices into a “Hub” at Ospadal Uibhist agus Bharraigh. This includes written opposition and press releases from political parties, all 7 Community councils and opinions expressed at community consultations organised by the IJB, November 2018 (after promising meetings “early Spring 2018”, and again “early Summer”). Additionally, the Uist Locality Planning Group of the IJB has recently stated that they have been ignored and marginalised.

A complaint has been made to the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman (SPSO). The IJB are now proceeding towards implementation. This must now be stopped in its tracks. Community views remain strongly opposed to this decision from the IJB and this Petition will help to provide evidence of this. 

Two MSP’s, Alasdair Allan (SNP) and Rhoda Grant (Labour) have asked questions at FMQ’s Holyrood requesting intervention by the Minister for Sport and Health, asking for an Inquiry into governance and process/procedure within the IJB... and also a more detailed examination of the impact of this decision within the Hospital, inevitably to the detriment of a well used and equipped Theatre facility and a live-saving Rehabilitation facility.  

Why have unanimous Community views been so seriously undermined and ignored, contrary to all strategic objectives promoting “Community Empowerment”.
