New OT centre

NHS Shetland has agreed to make a £1.2 million capital grant to Shetland Islands Council to help pay for the new £2.7 million occupational therapy centre, currently being built at Gremista.

The health board heard on Tuesday that the Scottish government had made available the capital grant for this financial year.

Together with a previous NHS grant of £334,000, made in February 2011, NHS Shetland is funding 55 per cent of the projected cost of a facility both organisations will benefit from.

SIC social services chairman Cecil Smith said he hoped the building would open early next year.
