Merge suggestion is hard to believe
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
