Merge sug­ges­tion is hard to be­lieve

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - FEATURES -

sIr, – In the wake of the fi­nan­cial scandal at NHs Tay­side, I cannot be­lieve for­mer sNP health sec­re­tary Alex Neil could se­ri­ously suggest an ideal so­lu­tion for the fu­ture would be to merge NHs Tay­side, NHs Fife and NHs Grampian, (Press and Journal, April 9).

How on earth could he be­lieve that would help, and that the fi­nan­cial shenani­gans un­cov­ered in Dundee last week would have been flagged up sooner had there cur­rently been fewer health boards?

I suggest we only re­quire to look at how dis­as­trous the Po­lice scot­land merg­ers have been to see how unworkable – and po­ten­tially dan­ger­ous – such a pro­posal would be. Judi Martin, Alma, Marycul­ter, Aberdeen­shire
