Malina MacLeod made an MBE for her outstanding public service

All of us in Tagsa are incredibly proud of our colleague Malina MacLeod as she is recognized for her outstanding public service and is made an MBE.

As Iain MacAulay (Lord-Lieutenant for the Western Isles), noted:

“Mrs Malina Macleod has dedicated herself to a career in nursing and social care, spanning more than 60 years. A former Matron of Lochmaddy Hospital for many years until it closed in 2001, she was the first Deputy Manager of the Uist and Barra Hospital in Benbecula when it opened in 2001.

Since her retirement from the nursing profession, Malina’s continued commitment and service to the North Uist community has been truly outstanding – working as a caring, highly valued and much sought after home-carer for local charity Tagsa Uibhist.

She drove considerable distances from the family home in Lochportain to ensure her patients and clients received the care and support they needed to remain in their own homes, all of whom speak appreciatively of her devotion, skills and caring abilities.
