Community Beds - Covid

Whilst COVID restrictions are being released for the country as a whole the NHS has just been advised by Scottish Government that the NHS is remaining on an emergency footing until at least the 30th June 2021. What this means for us in Portree hospital is that we need to maintain the Covid Assessment Centre(s) (CAC's) and this will continue to operate alongside our Urgent Care Centre.

The reopening of beds in Portree hospital will be subject to guidance from the Scottish Government around standing down CAC's and remobilising services. Depending on the guidance we may need to look at how the hospital operates, for example in relation to entry and exit routes or how we limit contact between visitors during visits. All this may have an effect on when or how many beds can be reopened. At this time 7 beds are open and in use at Portree hospital.
