Hospital leaking

NHS Shetland has said patient services at Gilbert Bain Hospital are running “as usual” despite water coming into the building due to the heavy rain and storm force winds.

The hospital issued a statement at lunchtime on Wednesday saying there had been “some water ingress on the main hospital corridor, Ronas Ward and Ward 3”.

Contingency plans are in place if the water damage becomes more extensive, the health board says.

Workmen are “currently working on identifying where the water is entering the building and undertaking remedial repairs”.
