Health and Wellbeing
The NHS is one of Scotland's greatest success stories, and the SNP have protected the frontline Health budget while in Government.
We have increased NHS staff to a record high, with 1300 more consultants, 1700 more nurses and midwives, and 9600 extra staff since 2006
We have abolished prescritption charges, making the NHS truly free at the point of need
We are encouraging cleaner hospitals and cases of MRSA were reduced by 88% between 2007 and 2014
There is higher patient satisfaction with the NHS, with the British Social Attitudes Survey showing that 75% of people in Scotland are satisfied with the NHS.
