Scottish Parliament: Cyber-resilience (24 May 2017)

Donald Cameron: be rescheduled was minimal. However, any delay to an operation, appointment or treatment as a result of the attack was frustrating, to say the least. Thirteen health boards were affected, and some GP surgeries. The Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport swiftly made a statement last week, and I am grateful for the clear manner in which she presented the known facts. Like her, I welcome...

Scottish Parliament: World Hypertension Month (23 May 2017)

Donald Cameron: ...As Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland notes, it is difficult to know whether one has high blood pressure because there are rarely symptoms or visible afflictions—hence the importance of a visit to the GP or local pharmacy, where a free blood-pressure check can be provided. People can also buy digital blood-pressure monitors to take regular tests at home. Given the relative...

Scottish Parliament: Neurofibromatosis Awareness Day (17 May 2017)

Donald Cameron: an issue for medical professionals. As the motion acknowledges, people who suffer from a form of Nf or have children with the condition often find themselves having to explain the condition to their GP. I do not want to criticise GPs, given the important and difficult job that they do. However, it is important for our medical professionals to be aware of such conditions, particularly...

Scottish Parliament: Global Ransomware Incident (16 May 2017)

Shona Robison: ...In response to Donald Cameron, I made the point that this is not about one type of software. The ransomware appears to have affected a number of different software and has particularly impacted on GP practices, rather than on acute hospitals, with NHS Lanarkshire being the exception. We need to understand a bit more about what lies underneath the more vulnerable areas, because there...

Scottish Parliament: Disabled People (16 May 2017)

Jeremy Balfour: Absolutely not; I am saying that they simply do not know. I go to my general practitioner if I have a cough, but we are talking about writing to a GP to ask how far a person can walk or whether they can peel potatoes. The GP does not lie; they simply do not know that information. The best evidence is always from the claimant himself or herself. A tribunal should be a positive experience...

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

Gail Ross: ...have nerve pain, fatigue and extreme exhaustion, and she also began to have problems with her sight. She went back to the general practitioner, who did blood tests to rule out anything straightforward. Nothing showed.

Scottish Parliament: General Practice (Nursing Roles) (10 May 2017)

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

Donald Cameron: live and work in the UK. However, I have said it before and I will say it again: the serious issues in NHS staffing in Scotland did not suddenly begin on 23 June 2016 when the UK voted to leave the EU. GP shortages existed long before then, so the SNP cannot use Brexit as cover for an existing workforce crisis.

Scottish Parliament: International Nurses Day (10 May 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: ...motto “Nurses: A Voice to Lead” sounds to me absolutely spot-on. Nurses are important in primary care in a way that they did not used to be. I would rather see the practice nurse for most of the things that I would wish to go to my GP for. Fortunately, I do not even know the name of my GP—that is how infrequent a visitor I am, and I hope to remain in that position. Some...

Finance (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (26 Apr 2017)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...;100 million of new capital investment in A&E departments because that will help to ensure that patients access the most appropriate care as quickly as possible by improving the space for assessing patients and providing on-site GP facilities.

Post Office Closures — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (25 Apr 2017)

Huw Merriman: status as the last shop in the village—they have received access to investment funding. I have 600 additional branch opening hours per week and 10 branches open on a Sunday. I wish our GP surgeries would follow suit. I want to come back briefly to three points made during the debate, which are important for reform. First, despite not having a post office or a single...
