Generator to be replaced at Hospital

Work to ensure that effective back-up power systems are in place at Western Isles Hospital is due to take place over the weekend with the installation of an additional generator.

The new generator will have the capacity to power the whole hospital, and having a second generator will also ensure that there will always be effective back-up when routine servicing is being carried out on the existing generator.

There may be minor disruption to the routine telephone service to Western Isles Hospital reception over the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) and members of the public are asked to be patient if there is a delay in responding to calls while this work is underway.
