Slim Posted November 29, 2007 Share Posted November 29, 2007 Hello Guys I don't know if this is appropriate or not. If not Karen/Keith just remove post. There is currently a consultation of the NeuroCentres in Scotland and the proposal is to close local Services and Locate to the Central belt. This I think would be madness especially as we know how important it is to get help as soon as possible. I would be grateful if you could fill in the questionnaire and to email the link to as many folk as possible. Even though you have no experience of my particular hospital you will be able to draw from your own situation. www.scotland.gov.uk/neuroscience Web address. click on ways to get involved then An online questionnaire is now available This I just copied from email Hi folks we've gone from Petition to Questionnaire. I would be really grateful if you could take 15 mins to fill out this Questionnaire. I know some of you have already been helped by Ward 40 and for the rest of you it is somewhere you will hopefully never have to avail off, but really we never know what is ahead of us. I Think it is crucial that we have a local service that can deal with any problems as quickly as possibly rather that the 3 to 4 hours down the road. Especially at a time when every second counts. I don't think Donald or I could have coped without having the support of our Family and friends coming into visit. Donald had to stay in Edinburgh for a week (when I was at the Western Infirmary) It was much less stressful for him when he was able to return to our home for the rest of my treatment in Aberdeen. Thanks Folks Aine xox PS if there is not unit in Aberdeen, that means alot of Nurses,Dr, O.T's Physio's etc will be surplus to requirement. "Can I please encourage all of you to take some time to complete the online questionnaire being conducted by an external research group in the potential significant reduction/closure of neurosurgery in Aberdeen and Dundee. This is important as this report will go to Nicola Sturgeon ( Cabinet Secretary for Health and Wellbeing, Deputy First Minister, Deputy Party Leader) who will have the final say...." Many thanks (PS it takes about 15 mins) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
