It's Time for a More Personal Health Service

Commenting Ms Robison said:

"We are committed to delivering a more personal health service that will keep healthcare local and ensure that each patient's waiting time is decided by their doctor, not the system.

"Scotland has lost eight Accident & Emergency services in recent years, with another two now under threat, while one third of Scottish patients are excluded from national waiting time guarantees. That is simply not good enough.

"Our presumption against centralisation of core hospital services will make a difference and individual waiting time guarantees will ensure no Scots are allowed to slip through the treatment net.

"Scotland can be healthier. It's time for fresh thinking and a new approach with the SNP."
