NHS to meet action group

Officials from NHS Dumfries and Galloway have agreed to meet with a pressure group set up to campaign for a “better and fairer health service.”

A spokesperson for NHS D&G Said: “Representatives of NHS Dumfries and Galloway will meet with this group and we will work together to create a structure for regular and frequent engagement with the public in Stranraer around enhancements to local hospital services.”

The Stranrer health Service pressure group want to open up dialogue with heath chiefs to discuss problems with patients in the west of the region who feel they are at a disadvantage compared to those who live in nearer to Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary.
