Nurses Dispute - News Update

Dawn, a buzzard, and a light mist off Tobermory

There's coverage of the District Nurse story in

- today's Herald, where reporter David Ross has obtained a comment from Nicola Sturgeon that she is "seeking assurances" from NHS Highland that there is "appropriate out-of-hours provision in West Ardnamurchan". Full story here.

- today's Oban Times, which carries the story on the front page for the third week running.

We're incredibly grateful to the two reporters concerned, David Ross of The Herald and Richard Haddock of The Oban Times' Fort William office, both of whom have grasped how important this fight is, not only to us but also to other remote, Scottish communities.

To add icing to the cake (or brandy butter to the Christmas pudding), the Diary, having read with growing joy David Ross's half page article in The Herald, turned the page to discover that The Herald's editor had picked up on the story and written a very supportive editorial.
