Letters / We have not been consulted

I can’t believe how the council seem to have little to no regard for the people on the North Isles.

With no consultation that I’ve been made aware of they cut the ferry service to us by that much that front line NHS staff can no longer get home after a long day shift in Gilbert Bain Hospital

I’d seen on social media that there had been a consultation with the people on Bressay to make sure that this sort of thing didn’t happen; yet here it happens?

A spokesperson for the SIC responded: “We have consulted widely with the communities served by the Yell Sound route, as well as with the NHS and local businesses, and continue to do so.  We are doing whatever we can to support key workers in the isles.”
