My concerns about the PFI contracts for hospitals such as the Royal infirmary, Hairmyres, Wishaw and many others is well and truly on the record. Many aspects of the contracts are costing the public purse very dearly, so much so that the Government down south has abandoned PFI as a method of funding future capital projects. I share many people’s frustration about the cost of the contracts to the public sector. We review them constantly to see if there is any way in which we can reduce the costs to the taxpayer.
