Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (Financial Accountability) (2 May 2018)

Shona Robison: ...from them, which the new duty of candour encourages. On the point about patient safety, members may be aware that news is emerging of a breast screening error that affects 450,000 women in England. Jeremy Hunt has just made a statement to the House of Commons on the matter. Given the significant public interest in it, I reassure members and the public that the issue does not affect the NHS...

Scottish Parliament: NHS Grampian (Funding) (7 Dec 2017)

Shona Robison: NHS England, of course, has no workforce plan, as Jeremy Hunt revealed just a few weeks ago, so I will take no lectures from the Tories about workforce planning. We have expanded the number of our nurse training places to 2,600 and I encourage all boards to look at innovative ways of recruiting nurses, rather than criticising them for doing so. I will end on this note: the biggest impact on...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Workforce (Impact of Brexit) (29 Nov 2017)

Shona Robison: As Jeremy Hunt recently announced, NHS England does not even have a workforce plan, but I am happy to share our plans with Jeremy Hunt to get him on his way to developing and delivering a workforce plan.

I record that I am happy to help Jeremy Hunt with development of that national workforce plan—in fact, we will offer to share with him the work that we have undertaken in...

Scottish Parliament: Access to New Medicines (4 Oct 2017)

Shona Robison: ...As a result, some manufacturers could choose not to work with the UK all, or could increase the costs of our medicines. In light of all that, in July, I wrote to the Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt, seeking clarity on the UK’s future relationship with the European Medicines Agency. I have also requested the full and regular involvement of the Scottish Government in those...

Scottish Parliament: Accident and Emergency Waiting Times (1 Jun 2017)

Shona Robison: ...consecutive months to March 2017. In March, Scotland’s core performance was more than 7 percentage points higher than that of England and more than 16 points higher than that of Wales. I say to Jeremy Balfour that he should perhaps look a little closer to home. Jeremy Hunt is a regular visitor to Scotland; he was up here just a few weeks ago to see how our emergency departments have been...
