Scottish Parliament: Cyber-resilience (24 May 2017)

John Swinney: ...of all our citizens about the risks and the steps that they can take to reduce them. As we have learned from recent events, swift action in co-ordination and sharing information limited the impact of the NHS ransomware attack. However, we must reflect on that incident, identify lessons and, more important, share those lessons with our partners so that we can help one other to put in place...

Scottish Parliament: World Hypertension Month (23 May 2017)

Donald Cameron: ...are about 26,000 hospital visits and 4,300 deaths each year. Heart attacks are another end result, from which there are 25,000 hospital visits every year. Those and other conditions place a heavy strain on the NHS, so it is incumbent upon us all to identify solutions so that hypertension can be reduced and we can tackle the resulting conditions. Actions speak louder than words, and I am...

Scottish Parliament: Engagements (18 May 2017)

Lewis Macdonald: The First Minister will know that NHS Grampian announced this week that it can no longer guarantee surgery within 12 weeks of diagnosis—it is not in a position to meet the targets that she has set. Will her Government therefore step up to the plate and provide NHS Grampian with the funding that it should receive under the Government’s own NHS Scotland resource allocation committee...

Scottish Parliament: Affordable Housing (North-east Scotland) (17 May 2017)

Kevin Stewart: ...—national health service staff and teachers in particular—will benefit from that offer. The Scottish Government-funded 100-unit housing project at Burnside in Aberdeen is also in the pipeline, and NHS staff will also be prioritised there. I am sure that Ms Martin was heartened—as I was—to see in Inverurie last week the new social housing development by Grampian...

Scottish Parliament: Neurofibromatosis Awareness Day (17 May 2017)

Christine Grahame: ..., and is also linked to autism; appreciates that people have concerns that, due to lack of awareness, those affected may not receive the correct treatment in time, and notes hopes that across all UK NHS boards, including NHS Lothian, NF patients will receive regular routine monitoring by specialists, in memory of the incredibly determined, Beth Beattie, who sadly passed away on 4 November...

Scottish Parliament: Global Ransomware Incident (16 May 2017)

Shona Robison: Scotland to the recent global ransomware attack. Members will have seen news reports about the global impact of Friday’s attack. In the United Kingdom, the main area affected has been the NHS. Across NHS England, 47 health organisations were infected with the malware, including 27 acute trusts. In Scotland, 13 health boards have experienced some impact from the attack, although...

Scottish Parliament: Engagements (11 May 2017)

Kezia Dugdale: ...3,400 in their wages. Our national health service staff are underresourced and underpaid. The Labour Party will always argue for better wages because that means better performance. The reality of today’s NHS is that nurses are more likely to leave the profession because the work is not paying as well as it should, and the result is hundreds of millions of pounds being spent on agency...

Scottish Parliament: International ME Awareness Day (11 May 2017)

Brian Whittle: ...that is being run by Action for ME. However, although those steps are welcome, it is clear that much more needs to be done to give ME sufferers and their families the support that they need. Key to that support is the NHS; the availability of specialised treatment and support in the NHS is, to say the least, patchy. Chronic conditions such as ME will inevitably lead to sufferers having to...

Scottish Parliament: Organ and Tissue Donation (Consultation) (10 May 2017)

Aileen Campbell: ...Plan For Scotland 2013-2020”, the Scottish Government has provided funding to appoint seven additional specialist nurses for organ donation and funding for a dedicated regional manager from NHS Blood and Transplant to work full time in Scotland. There are currently 22 full-time equivalent nurses. Appointing more would dilute expertise in approaching families and obtaining...

Scottish Parliament: General Practice (10 May 2017)

Shona Robison: interest in the issues surrounding Inverleith medical practice in his constituency. The retention of the practice staff team in the national health service was one of the key considerations for NHS Lothian—the member has spoken to me about that on a number of occasions. All the staff have found positions in several other general practitioner practices in the NHS—we actively...

Scottish Parliament: Minor Injuries Units (10 May 2017)

Pauline McNeill: The west Glasgow minor injuries unit treats adults and children over five. On 13 December, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde announced that the service would temporarily move to the Queen Elizabeth university hospital. I am sure that the cabinet secretary agrees that minor injuries units are an important service that prevents patients from turning up at accident and emergency services and thereby...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Pay (10 May 2017)

Anas Sarwar: Today, the Scottish Parliament has the opportunity to unite in support of Scotland’s NHS staff. We should take that opportunity. Every single day, our amazing NHS staff perform miracles. There is the caring, the examining, the diagnosing, the treating, the operating, the saving of lives and the delivering of newborns. There are also the aspects that are easily forgotten or not recorded...

The Presiding Officer: The result of the division is: For 62, Against 55, Abstentions 0.

I have my own case history.: I am a nurse. Prior to Hollywood—I mean Holyrood; Hollywood was another place where I worked. Prior to coming to...

Scottish Parliament: Forensic Examination (9 May 2017)

Michael Matheson: .... We know, for example, that the majority of victims would prefer to be examined by a female doctor, but the gender balance among doctors who have the necessary training does not offer that choice. A course designed by NHS Education for Scotland for the Scottish legal system exists, but its uptake by female doctors is low. Only 19 female forensic physicians are working in Scotland. In...
