Papa Westray Island Development Plan
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.
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.
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.
