Jackie Baillie: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I am not sure whether my app connected. I would have voted yes.

Scottish Parliament: Wildlife Management and Muirburn (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (19 Mar 2024)

Jackie Baillie: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I am afraid that my app would not connect and therefore I did not manage to vote no.

Scottish Parliament: Accident and Emergency Waiting Times (14 Mar 2024)

Jackie Baillie: 6. To ask the First Minister what urgent action is being taken to address long waits in A and E departments, in light of reports that over 7,300 patients waited for more than a day in 2023, with some waiting much longer. (S6F-02918)

Scottish Parliament: Accident and Emergency Waiting Times (14 Mar 2024)

Jackie Baillie: I thank the First Minister for his response, but in NHS Ayrshire and Arran, one patient waited at A and E for 122 hours—that is five days. At Borders general hospital, the wait was 88 hours. In NHS Lanarkshire, someone waited more than 72 hours. Consultants—I repeat, consultants—tell me that patients are being treated on trolleys in corridors when they should be in a bed. Let us be in...

Scottish Parliament: Health Budget (13 Mar 2024)

Jackie Baillie: Patients and staff have been promised state-of-the-art national treatment centres for many years now, specifically to increase capacity and tackle the waiting list backlog. As a result of the real-terms reduction in health spending in the forthcoming financial year, the cabinet secretary has instructed health boards to halt all project plans. Now that the NHS recovery plan is in tatters, how...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Waiting Lists (13 Mar 2024)

Jackie Baillie: I thank all staff who are employed in the NHS. We know that they work incredibly hard to care for us, but they are being let down by the Scottish National Party Government. It has been two years and seven months since Humza Yousaf published the Scottish Government’s NHS recovery plan. The First Minister at the time, Nicola Sturgeon, said: “This plan will drive the recovery of our...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Waiting Lists (13 Mar 2024)

Jackie Baillie: I move, That the Parliament is concerned that almost 825,000 patients are stuck on NHS waiting lists for tests and treatment, whilst long waits have continued to rise, despite the current First Minister promising to eradicate them; is disappointed that the statutory 12-week Treatment Time Guarantee has been broken 680,000 times since it was introduced, and 320,000 times before the COVID-19...

Scottish Parliament: Eljamel and NHS Tayside Public Inquiry and Independent Clinical Review (29 Feb 2024)

Jackie Baillie: I thank the cabinet secretary for advance sight of his statement and welcome him to the health and social care portfolio. I welcome the announcement of the chairs of the public inquiry and the clinical review process into the Eljamel scandal and NHS Tayside. I pay tribute to the tenacity of the many campaigners, but in particular to Jules Rose and Pat Kelly. We would not be here today without...

Scottish Parliament: National Care Service (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (29 Feb 2024)

Jackie Baillie: Social care is in crisis right now. Care packages for some of our most vulnerable people are being cut, almost 10,000 people are stuck waiting to receive assessments and care, and providers are handing back contracts because they cannot afford to deliver. Staff morale is at rock bottom, with people leaving the profession in droves. Nothing in the bill addresses that immediate crisis. Instead,...

Scottish Parliament: National Care Service (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (29 Feb 2024)

Jackie Baillie: I understand that the member has been asking for the target operating model for some time. Does he think that it is acceptable that it appeared only yesterday, when there was no time for committee scrutiny?

Scottish Parliament: National Care Service (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (29 Feb 2024)

Jackie Baillie: The minister has managed to join together all the trade unions—Unite the union, GMB, the STUC and Unison—in a common view: they want all of that in the bill. Why will she not do it?

Scottish Parliament: National Care Service (Scotland) Bill: Referral Back to Lead Committee at Stage 1 (28 Feb 2024)

Jackie Baillie: I come to the chamber more in sorrow than in anger to move a motion to ask the Parliament to send the National Care Service (Scotland) Bill back to the Health, Social Care and Sport Committee for further evidence taking and consideration before stage 1. This is only the second time that such a motion has been brought before the chamber—such is the seriousness with which this action is...

Scottish Parliament: National Care Service (Scotland) Bill: Referral Back to Lead Committee at Stage 1 (28 Feb 2024)

Jackie Baillie: I absolutely do. The Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee made the point that it is not good legislative practice to stick substantive decisions on spending into secondary legislation. An expert bill advisory group simply does not exist for the National Care Service (Scotland) Bill, so there is a genuine lack of confidence that the proposed changes will work, and promises of...

Jackie Baillie: Will the minister take an intervention?

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 3) Bill (27 Feb 2024)

Jackie Baillie: Seventeen years of economic and financial mismanagement by the SNP have come home to roost. The scale of the SNP’s financial failings is exposed in a deeply chaotic budget, the impact of which will be felt by generations of Scots for years to come. Sleight-of-hand presentation cannot mask the reality that public finances are in dire straits and that Scots are paying the price of SNP...

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 3) Bill (27 Feb 2024)

Jackie Baillie: Maybe you should listen for a minute. I am also old enough to remember—[ Interruption .] I will give way on this point, because I would like to hear what the Deputy First Minister has to say.

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 3) Bill (27 Feb 2024)

Jackie Baillie: I always endeavour to do so, Presiding Officer, and I learned everything that I know from John Swinney, so I am grateful to him for the reminder of behaviour. I am genuinely long enough in the tooth to remember that, for the last two years of a UK Labour Government, when the SNP was in government here, the money that was passed on to Scotland for the NHS was diverted away from it by the SNP...
