A Freedom of Information request has confirmed that during 2020 & 2021 there were only 10 #COVID19 deaths in #NHS #Highlands, where Covid was the sole cause of death listed on their death certificate...

NHS Highlands has a population of 320,000 Image
The Highlands covers the largest land mass of all the #NHS boards in #Scotland

10 deaths from 135 is of course a low figure

Also interesting is the 135 total. Similar to the island communities, its more difficult to misattribute deaths in these highland towns

#NHS #Highland refused to answer the questions on #DNR and hospital acquired infections

The variation in response across the boards has been interesting ....

N.B. I didnt expect a response on #Omicron but I was of course making a point Image

Knockamillie (modern spelling) as per the road name has evolved from the Gaelic 'cnoc' or 'cnocach' meaning hill or hilly and 'maille' which I have seen translated as cape or promontory which would fit with its elevated peninsula location overlooking the Clyde (red map pin) /3
