Decarbonising Rural Transport — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] ( 7 Mar 2023)

Gavin Newlands: ...that in Scotland that is not the case. The areas with the highest penetration of public charge points per capita are Orkney, the Western Isles, Argyll and Bute, Highland, Shetland, and Dumfries and Galloway. That is because the driver was Scottish Government public investment. Down here, the UK Government have relied on private investment. Does the hon. Gentleman think that is why rural...

Scottish Parliament: Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2023 ( 2 Mar 2023)

Emma Harper: ...have been created within the implementation group. I would welcome an update from the minister on the implementation of those recommendations. I contacted the dietetic team from NHS Dumfries and Galloway. The team has a dietician who works specifically with patients who are living with, or at risk of developing, an eating disorder. I heard that, because of the rurality of Dumfries and...

Scottish Parliament: Dementia Strategy ( 1 Mar 2023)

Emma Harper: ...to play in supporting people who are living with dementia to feel safe and able to play an active role in their local communities as their needs change. Loreburn Housing Association in Dumfries and Galloway has built dementia-friendly housing alongside an innovative employment hub on the site of the former Garrick hospital in Stranraer. Young people living at the youth foyer are expected...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Dental Care Provision (23 Feb 2023)

Oliver Mundell: ...an NHS dentist. The advice from the health board is that they should try to find a private dentist. Does the cabinet secretary agree that that is wrong, and will she approach NHS Dumfries and Galloway and ask it to think again?

Scottish Parliament: Marking One Year of War against Ukraine (23 Feb 2023)

Neil Gray: ...five consignments of medical supplies to Poland for onward transport to Ukraine, totalling 156 pallets worth almost £3 million. We have also committed £300,000 to the Halo Trust, a Dumfries and Galloway-based charity that specialises in removing landmines and other dangerous explosive devices. Today, I am pleased to announce to Parliament that we will provide an additional £1 million in...

Scottish Parliament: Deposit Return Scheme (22 Feb 2023)

Colin Smyth: ...are not just about big business lobbying. They are primarily the concerns of small businesses, in my region and others, that are simply trying to survive. That includes the small gin distillery in Galloway that I recently visited. It has one stock keeping unit with one bottle design, but it will now need to order twice as many bottles with every order because of minimum order levels,...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Dentistry ( 8 Feb 2023)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ...at all. In rural communities, the situation is even more acute. In Orkney and Shetland, the number of NHS dental claims has fallen by more than 50 per cent, while many practices in Dumfries and Galloway have closed their doors to NHS work entirely. The warning lights are well and truly on, and they are blinking, but the Government’s response has been achingly slow. Let us think about how...

Scottish Parliament: Maternity Services (Caithness) ( 2 Feb 2023)

Rhoda Grant: The cabinet secretary has carried out independent reviews of Moray maternity services, and he has now commenced a review in Dumfries and Galloway. The review that was carried out by NHS Highland was not independent of NHS Highland, and concerns about maternity services have been on-going since the change was made back in 2016, when obstetric cover was removed. Women have to travel over 100...

Scottish Parliament: ME Services ( 2 Feb 2023)

Finlay Carson: ...funded in a selection of NHS boards to test the development of specialist services with patient involvement and third sector collaboration embedded in the design.” I hope that NHS Dumfries and Galloway gets involved in such a move. The charity Action for ME provides much-needed support for people of all ages, including healthcare services, as well as funding and carrying out research...

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 2) Bill: Stage 1 ( 2 Feb 2023)

Colin Smyth: ...goes by when my inbox—like, I am sure, those of others—does not contain another heartbreaking case that exposes how utterly broken our care services are. Today, a third of beds in Dumfries and Galloway royal infirmary are occupied by patients whose discharge is delayed by a lack of carers. More than 3,000 hours of assessed care is not being covered because there are no carers to cover...

Scottish Parliament: Strategic Transport Projects Review 2 (26 Jan 2023)

Finlay Carson: ...work together on a route that is of huge importance to the whole of the UK. Will the cabinet secretary put his constitutional grievance to one side, if he is capable of doing that? No one in Galloway cares where the money comes from. When will the residents of Crocketford and Springholm be able to sleep safely in their beds, and when will they get the bypass? If the cabinet secretary wants...

Scottish Parliament: Strategic Transport Projects Review 2 (Rail in South Scotland) (19 Jan 2023)

Emma Harper: ...made? Improving that service from the current two-hour journey from Dumfries to Glasgow will allow more people to rely on public transport across the region and will attract people to Dumfries and Galloway, because the stations in the region could be key commuter lines to Glasgow.

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service and Social Care (18 Jan 2023)

Colin Smyth: ..., the impact has been profound. A day rarely goes by when my inbox does not contain another heartbreaking case that exposes how utterly broken services are. Today, a third of beds in Dumfries and Galloway royal infirmary are occupied by patients whose discharge is delayed by the lack of carers and care home places. More than 3,000 hours of assessed care are not being covered. I will share...

Scottish Parliament: National Drugs Mission (12 Jan 2023)

Emma Harper: ...good, but rural areas are less well catered for.” I know that the minister is very much aware that issues in rural areas must be addressed, and I know that she has engaged with the Dumfries and Galloway and Scottish Borders alcohol and drug partnerships and NHS boards. I welcome that. The expansion of navigator services nationally, supported by a comprehensive framework, standards and...

Scottish Parliament: National Planning Framework 4 (11 Jan 2023)

Emma Harper: ...a visit by the minister there, too. The revised NPF4 makes it clear that Scotland will not compromise on the climate crisis and empowering communities. We have many derelict sites in Dumfries and Galloway and in the Scottish Borders, such as the George hotel and the east pier in Stranraer, the Interfloor/Gates factory in Dumfries, the Central hotel in Annan, the Mercury hotel in Moffat and...

Lifeboat Services: Search and Rescue — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (10 Jan 2023)

Kevin Foster: ...lifeboat organisations vary greatly in size, crew numbers, rescue numbers and types of rescue boat used. Crews range from the 12 crew members at Port William Inshore Rescue Service in Dumfries and Galloway to the around 260 crew members at Community Rescue Service, which operates across Northern Ireland; and call-outs range from the five call-outs in 2021 for the Sea Palling independent...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (Winter Pressures) (10 Jan 2023)

Humza Yousaf: I have regular conversations with our health boards, including NHS Dumfries and Galloway, NHS Borders and NHS Grampian, where we tend to see pretty significant pressures in relation to general practice and community pharmacies. I will continue having such conversations. On the back of Finlay Carson’s question, I will also ask the chief medical officer and the chief pharmaceutical officer to...

Scottish Parliament: Maternity Services in Moray (22 Dec 2022)

Finlay Carson: ...areas where trust in health boards is at rock bottom. I am sure that it will be of little comfort to Douglas Ross to know that he is not alone in witnessing a serious erosion of health services. In Galloway and West Dumfries, we are experiencing a similar crisis that needs to be rectified as a matter of urgency. There has been much talk in the debate about option 4 and option 6 but, in...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (20 Dec 2022)

..., today, we are five days before Christmas, and I would like to reflect on the faith of one of our great Scottish scientists, James Clerk Maxwell, who was brought up in Corsock in Dumfries and Galloway. Every morning, James and his wife Katherine had their own time for reflection. They read the Bible together and they prayed together, and when they were apart, James wrote to Katherine with...

Scottish Parliament: Asset Transfers and Community Empowerment (15 Dec 2022)

Tom Arthur: ...only 15 per cent made to other public bodies. However, by 2021-22, 46 per cent of the total number of requests were made to other public authorities, including NHS Lanarkshire, NHS Dumfries and Galloway, NHS Fife, NHS Grampian, NHS Highland and NHS Western Isles. Scottish Government agencies such as Scottish Water and Forestry and Land Scotland received requests, too. Those figures are...
