THE campaign to secure a specialist M.S nurse for the Western Isles stepped up a gear recently when a petition of 4,846 signatures was handed over to Mr Jamieson, Chief Executive of the Western Isles Health Board by Christine Stewart.
Also present to see the petition handed over were Mr Andrew Johnston (M.S Scotland), Mr Donald White, Mr Norman Logue, Mrs Rhoda Grant (M.S.P Highlands and Islands) and Ms Catherine Miller.
The local branch of the M.S. Society will also be holding a ‘Living with MS’ day on Saturday 12th March at the High Church Hall, Stornoway from 10.30am-4pm.
The guest speaker will be Vicki Matthews, MS Specialist Nurse and advisor to the MS Trust.
The event will cover a wide range of topics and there will also be an opportunity to ask any questions. All those whose lives have been affected by the condition are welcome to attend.
