The pharmacist who has opened a commercial business in Millport at a time when islanders are campaigning to save the GPs dispensary at The Garrison has hit out at local councillor and lawyer Alan Hill.
In response to a letter from Councillor Hill who criticised the new pharmacy Mr James Semple claimed the island solicitor was "ill-informed."
In a hard-hitting letter Mr Semple said:
'Pharmacy services' are not provided by the local GP. A dispensing service is, but it's not the same thing and I'd have hoped a lawyer might understand the difference. "
