MSP fears for Perth A&E unit
An MSP has called for assurances over the future of an A&E unit in Tayside.
Murdo Fraser, the Perthshire MSP for the Tories, raised fears in Holyrood that Perth Royal Infirmary is under threat following an NHS plan to shunt emergency surgery to Ninewells in Dundee.
Mr Fraser said there is “serious concern”.
Health Secretary Shona Robison insisted: “The PRI is a very important district general hospital and a very important part of the infrastructure of the national health service.
“Therefore, I hope to get rid of any scaremongering that might have been taking place.”
