Membership and Contact Details

The general feeling within the group is that the membership list held by the MS group for the Western Isles is incorrect and a suggestion was put forward that we should request an up to date list from the MS Society in order to establish an accurate Western Isles Membership (ADO to liase with MSS Membership team).

Hyperbaric Chamber

Awaiting response from Cllr C Nicolson.


It was agreed that in order to stimulate interest in the Group we should hold the usual bussiness meeting monthly and set aside a second evening to hold informal/discussions meetings. Chairman to contact MS Nurse to request a general information evening -  to be held on the 17th June.
