NEW INVESTMENT IN NHS DIAGNOSTICS AND CARE IN TAYSIDE

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has welcomed news that the NHS in Tayside is set to benefit from a share of a £50 million Scotland-wide investment to help deliver swift treatment and diagnostics.

She said:

“I understand that these additional funds will be distributed in two tranches - Tayside getting an initial £1,962,000 share with the second £25 million to be allocated later in the year.

“Scotland already invests more per head of population than anywhere else in the UK. Tory-led England and Labour-led Wales continue to lag behind Scotland, including on A&E waiting times where Scotland has had the lowest waiting times for over 3 years.

“The staff of Scotland’s NHS do a fantastic job day in, day out. This funding boost will support a package of measures to help further improve performance in Tayside, including new independent experts being appointed to speed up diagnostic tests.

“The Scottish Government has already committed to invest an extra £2 billion above inflation by the end of this parliament – the highest funding offer of any party at the last election – and we already invest more in our NHS per head of population than anywhere else in the UK, supporting frontline health services for my constituents in Perthshire South& Kinross-shire.

“That’s one of the reasons why Scotland’s A&E departments have shown the best performance of anywhere in the UK for the last 3 years.”
