At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.
To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.
We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device. In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.
Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).
Fort William-based dental practice M and S Dental Care, which also operates a clinic in Glencoe, has reassured patients it is remaining open during the new national coronavirus lockdown.
In an online statement, parent company Clyde Munro Dental Group confirmed: ‘We would like to reassure all our patients that we remain open during this current lockdown announced by the Scottish Government on January 4 2021.
‘During this lockdown, dentistry has been approved as essential care which means we can see our patients for the majority of dental procedures. Please note aesthetic treatments are not available at this time.
‘Current restrictions also limit travel, however, in this case essential travel includes leaving home for healthcare, therefore you are permitted to travel to the dental surgery.’
Clyde Munro Dental Group founder and chief executive Jim Hall told the Lochaber Times: ‘Once again we have gone into national lockdown to keep our loved ones safe, but we would like to reassure all our patients that our practices will remain open during this period and our practices will be available to carry out essential dental care throughout this lockdown.
‘The safety of our staff and patients is our top priority and we have worked hard to ensure we have in place all the necessary precautions to safely provide the essential care our patients need during this challenging time.
‘Contact your local Clyde Munro practice to find out what treatments are available to you.’
