‘Island proofing’ may save hospital services


Proposed new government legislation may help to protect services at Oban’s Lorn and Islands Hospital. During his recent visit to Mull, covered by The Oban Times, Minister Humza Yousaf found the time to talk about his proposed Islands Bill which he is taking though the Scottish Parliament.

According to his proposal, all new legislation will have to be considered for its impact on island communities. This he called ‘island proofing’ for short. He was able to confirm that the legislation will also apply to policies developed by government agencies as well as the government itself.
