I thank the minister for her answer, but the fact remains that, in the most recent quarter, 85 young people in NHS Lothian waited for more than a year, and 118 young people waited for more than a year across all NHS health boards.

Does the minister agree with me and the Scottish children’s services coalition that there must be a radical transformation of our mental health services?
