NHS Western Isles today (Friday) launched a new website at www.wihb.scot.nhs.uk/ with links to Facebook and Twitter accounts, which will be updated on an ongoing basis.
Work has been ongoing for a number of months to develop the new website and ensure that sections of interest to the public and patients were included. The website is now live and will continue to be developed and added to over the coming months.
NHS Western Isles Communications Manager Maggie Fraser said: "We would encourage people in the Western Isles, and any other interested parties, to visit the new website and use the online feedback forms to give us any comments or suggestions for further improvement. The purpose of the website is to keep members of the public updated and informed, so please let us know if you feel anything further should be added to the site.
"The new Facebook and Twitter sites were introduced to help to improve communication and to enable us to communicate messages out to the public in a new way. We would urge local people to visit our Facebook page and 'click to Like', or follow us on Twitter, to keep in touch and receive regular updates from us."
