We are tak­ing care of the NHS

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

As an NHS nurse, I see first hand how it’s de­liv­er­ing some of the UK’s best and fastest care.

The lat­est four hour A&E data is 94.2 per cent in Scot­land, 87.8 per cent in Eng­land, and 76.3 per cent in Wales. Last month, 4,387 peo­ple waited more than 12 hours in Labour-run Welsh A&E de­part­ments to be seen, com­pared to around 115 in Scot­land.

If re-elected, the SNP will trans­form our NHS with nearly £2bn of ex­tra in­vest­ment, ac­tion to tackle can­cer, sup­port for men­tal health and de­liver health­care closer to home.

Only the SNP has com­mit­ted to in­crease the health bud­get by £500m above in­fla­tion by 2021.

We’ve a com­pe­tent long-term plan for the NHS and so­cial care, in­clud­ing £200m elec­tive cen­tres. Through pri­mary care re­form we’ll bring mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary teams to surg­eries, and de­liver a com­mu­nity health ser­vice. We’ll in­crease num­ber of con­sul­tants, make greater use of clin­i­cal gen­er­al­ists, and en­shrine safe staffing in law.
