NHS Western Isles

from: United Kingdom

The organisation is registered to participate in the following event(s):

NHS Western Isles works alongside mainland Health Boards and other local organisations, including the local authority and third sector (voluntary) organisations, to provide a wide range of healthcare services to the local population. Where possible, services are provided locally, in the Western Isles, but for specific procedures and more specialist services, we work with mainland partners to provide services in other areas. There are three hospitals run by NHS Western Isles. The largest is the Western Isles Hospital, a Rural General Hospital located in Stornoway. Western Isles Hospital was opened in 1992 with a range of hospital acute specialities, psychiatry and care of the elderly. The hospital also includes diagnostic facilities, day hospital, laboratory, Allied Health Professionals and other services. Ospadal Uibhist agus Bharraigh (Uist and Barra Hospital) is located in Benbecula, and was opened in 2001. It provides a local service for the population of the Southern Isles. The hospital has 29 beds, and provides care of the elderly, GP Acute and Midwifery led maternity services. Many of the Consultants from the Western Isles Hospital, and some from mainland Health Boards, visit the Uist and Barra Hospital to provide outpatient services. St Brendan’s Hospital, with 5 beds, is located in Castlebay on the Isle of Barra and is in a shared building with a local authority care home facility. It is supported by the local GP Practice to provide care of the elderly and other services. In addition, NHS Western Isles commissions services from other NHS Boards, for example Ear Nose & Throat (ENT) Surgery, Dermatology, Respiratory Medicine, Child Psychiatry, Rheumatology, specialised Paediatrics, Ophthalmology, Oral Surgery, Neurology, Oncology and Urology.
