"Scan unavailable on Skye"
Posted by monserrat (as ),
We live in Borve. My husband needed a scan for possible blood clot in his leg.
He had to go to Inverness for this procedure, Broadford were not doing scan that week.
Almost 5pm, arrived at Inverness, his GP app was 09:15. Car hired to take him there overnight, stay in hospital, next day scan medication.
No transport available to bring him home. Taxi to bus station then 3 hour bus ride back to Portree.
What is the point of having a hospital on the Isle of Skye if the facilities are not available? People complain about the health service and being a nurse myself for 30 years I have always defended it but the cost of the above was ridiculous.
Having said all that his care at Raigmore was very good.
