Health & Care


We will ensure that we can care for everyone on the island, especially the vulnerable and elderly and in doing so provide valuable employment opportunities.


Projects include


Island Based Health & Care Facilities

Support the ongoing provision of good quality island based health and care services supplemented by weekly GP surgery and minor emergency cover from Westray NHS surgery.


Provide Itinerant Health Services

Make full use of the NHS surgery to provide services such as a Chiropodist, Optician, Dentist, Physiotherapist, Dietician and Family Health Services.


Local Dial-a-Bus Transport Service

Provide an accessible dial-a-bus transport service for elderly, disabled and vulnerable members of the community.


Ambulance Services

Work with the relevant authorities to secure an island ambulance vehicle for Papay and a North Isles based Air Ambulance Service with strong public confidence.
