Bus Turning Circle Ellenabeich

A bus turning proposal for Ellenabeich being considered by Argyll and Bute Council. Until a final proposal is agreed (and it might not be the one illustrated) an interim bus turning proposal needs to be found to keep the bus service running into Ellenabeich. Several options are being considered.

One current proposal involves the piece of ground currently forming part of the ‘mini-golf’ course. You can see this in the documents linked to  below:

What are the concerns?

  1. Dismantling a health serves that currently works well and patients are happy with.
  2. Increased travelling for patients
  3. Loss of autonomy will destabilise the practice structures and teams.
  4. Lack of security for the future, for recruitment and patients alike.
  5. Loss of current multidisciplinary team communication and structures.
  6. Reduction of quality and continuity of the current service.
  7. Fragmenting an existing service that is not broken.
  8. The proposed New Contract is unrealistic in rural areas.

What do we need?

 A commitment to Rural-proof the New GP Contract NOW.

  1. To have a significant contribution to the rural Short Life Working Group with representation by RGPAS(Rural GP Association of Scotland).
  2. A national rural enhanced service framework to allow practices to retain work, be resourced to do it and to enable more realistic and effective dialogue between practice teams and HSCPs
  3. A Correction Factor that adequately reflects the level of workload involved in rural practice and that adequately reflects and funds sustainable rural practice services
