Scottish Parliament: Rural National Health Service Boards (Support) ( 7 Mar 2024)

Oliver Mundell: Steering away from the political debate around specific budgets, I am concerned that the current funding model does not take into account the ageing demographic in areas such as Dumfries and Galloway and the challenges in delivering health services across a wide geographical area. In the light of the recent work on rural depopulation, will the cabinet secretary look again at whether current...

Scottish Parliament: Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal 2024 (29 Feb 2024)

Emma Harper: ...Government working to a minimum target of 50 per cent statutory funding for independent hospice care providers, including those that provide hospice care at home. Given that, across Dumfries and Galloway, 4,359 visits were made to 542 people and patients by the region’s 31 dedicated Marie Curie nurses, I would welcome the minister’s comments on that ask by Marie Curie. Support from...

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

Emma Harper: ...board will help to standardise how we approach social care and social work and care across Scotland. Just this week, my office spoke to a local organisation that provides care across Dumfries and Galloway about the NCS board and standardisation, and it welcomed the approach. Stewartry Care, which is one of the largest providers of social care in Dumfries and Galloway, gave evidence to the...

Scottish Parliament: Robert the Bruce (750th Anniversary) (28 Feb 2024)

There will also be Bruce-themed activities at the Caerlaverock castle jousting event on 27...

Scottish Parliament: Maternity Services (Wigtownshire) (21 Feb 2024)

Jenni Minto: We expect all national health service boards to provide maternity services that are delivered as close to home as is practical, balanced with ensuring the safety of mother and baby. NHS Dumfries and Galloway has been consulting on two options for maternity care in Wigtownshire. The consultation closed on 11 February 2024, with feedback being carried out by an independent third sector...

Scottish Parliament: Single-use Vapes (30 Jan 2024)

Emma Harper: In addition to the health concerns, there are clear short-term and long-term environmental impacts of single-use vapes, with communities, including communities in Dumfries and Galloway, being blighted by them, as they are dumped and discarded on our streets. Does the minister agree with me and charities such as Keep Scotland Beautiful that the ban on single-use vapes will benefit our...

Scottish Parliament: Green Economy (24 Jan 2024)

Colin Smyth: ...of Scotland. If we are serious about a just transition in which no worker, family or community is left behind, we need to get more serious about where those green jobs are created. Dumfries and Galloway, which is my home region, has 3 per cent of Scotland’s population but we generate 8 per cent of Scotland’s renewable energy and we are home to 11 per cent of Scotland’s more than...

Tributes to Sir Tony Lloyd (23 Jan 2024)

Afzal Khan: ...Nick Griffin, who represented the north-west. Again, Tony was a star—he knew exactly what needed to be done at the right time and what needed to be said. It was the same when it came to George Galloway—I have had my share from both the left and the right. I always found Tony to be an absolute gem. With his experience, his balanced ideas and his clarity of thought, I always found myself...

Scottish Parliament: Breastfeeding (23 Jan 2024)

Emma Harper: ...and I did not work much in the field of midwifery. I will focus my remarks on the progress that has been made in Scotland and on some fantastic examples of what is happening across Dumfries and Galloway in my South Scotland region. The Scottish Government is committed to supporting breastfeeding through policy, investment and interventions that support breastfeeding without shame or...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Rural and Islands Youth Parliament (18 Jan 2024)

Colin Smyth: stay or, if they left for college or university, the opportunities to attract them back home. That echoes concerns that were raised almost eight years ago, during a workshop in Dumfries and Galloway that was organised by the National Council of Rural Advisers in 2018. One young person said: “Young people want to have a purpose to stay, live and bring up their families.” Another...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Waiting Times (17 Jan 2024)

Colin Smyth: ...the SNP pledged to eradicate delayed discharge within a year. Today, delayed discharge has spiralled out of control and has drained £1.2 billion from our NHS over the past decade. In Dumfries and Galloway alone, between 2015 and 2023, the bill for it was a staggering £40 million, which is money that we could have used to pay carers a proper wage. No service or constituent in my region...

Scottish Parliament: Bank of Scotland Mobile Branch Services (11 Jan 2024)

Emma Harper: remote and rural areas. The Bank of Scotland’s decision to remove mobile banking services will leave many people in some of our most remote and rural communities, including across Dumfries and Galloway in my South Scotland region, without direct access to banking. It is also clear that the decision will disproportionately affect elderly people and disabled people. I join Rhoda Grant...

Scottish Parliament: UCI Cycling World Championships (10 Jan 2024)

Finlay Carson: I welcomed the UCI cycling world championships being in Scotland. Dumfries and Galloway, which is a region that has already etched its name in the history of cycling as the birthplace of the pedal cycle bike in 1839, played host to the road competitions for paracyclists. South of Scotland Destination Alliance suggested that there might have been a £6 million boost to the local economy, but...

Scottish Parliament: Police Officer Numbers (South Scotland) (10 Jan 2024)

Colin Smyth: We have seen police officer numbers plummet right across Scotland in recent years. In the smallest division, Dumfries and Galloway, numbers have been cut from 411 in June 2020 to just 354, which means that, at certain times, just a couple of officers are covering a huge geographical area. Can the cabinet secretary confirm whether the recent budget means that we will return to the levels of...

Scottish Parliament: Constitution, Europe, External Affairs and Culture Committee Report: “How Devolution is Changing Post-EU” ( 9 Jan 2024)

Emma Harper: ...stating in the chamber that they have written to a UK Government minister and had no reply. Indeed, I have written to the Secretary of State for Scotland, who is also my MP in Dumfries and Galloway, on 19 separate occasions and I have never once had a reply, even on casework matters. Perhaps I should hand deliver those letters to Queen Elizabeth house, which is just round the corner. It is...

Scottish Parliament: Marie Curie (75th Anniversary) (21 Dec 2023)

Carol Mochan: ..., Marie Curie works not only in hospices but in people’s homes, in our communities and with our NHS. My South Scotland region is served by NHS Ayrshire and Arran, NHS Borders and NHS Dumfries and Galloway. I know that patients and staff from all of those health boards hold that working relationship in high regard. The report that others have mentioned talks about numbers of visits. In my...
