Stop a methadone clinic in Campbeltown

Target: NHS Highland
Region: GLOBAL

Petition Background (Preamble):

Campbeltown has a very minor problem with heroin, if this clinic goes ahead it will ruin the town which is improving all the time, it has new housing schemes, a new ferry service, new golf course, a new sea front.

The town has a very friendly attitude towards tourist's and it is also trying to make this more attractive for that very cause, which is badly needed. The town's people don't want all those things ruined with the problems that a clinic would bring. It would cause an influx of heroin user's, bring crime to the area, danger to health.

It has been proven in other town's in Argyll and Bute, so why cant NHS Highland take note and also listen to report's from police and the knowledge of the town's 6 local doctors and stop these clinics ruining Scotland's towns.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, call on NHS Highland to forfeit their plans for a methadone clinic in Campbeltown, Argyll, Scotland.
