The Scottish Government has regularly engaged with staff representatives and it was clear from our most recent meeting with them on 28 January, where I was in attendance with the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport, that significant concerns remain. We welcome NHS Tayside’s commitment to working in partnership with its staff and staff representatives to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to contribute, learn, influence and shape the future of mental health services in Tayside. As I said in my statement, I am encouraged to hear that the safe space meetings are running; they will enable staff to raise concerns in an environment that they feel is a confidential space in which they are supported.
