There are five questions to be put as a result of today’s business.

I advise members that, if the amendment in the name of Craig Hoy is agreed to, the amendment in the name of Alex Cole-Hamilton will fall.

The first question is, that amendment S6M-01190.3, in the name of Craig Hoy, which seeks to amend motion S6M-01190, in the name of Humza Yousaf, on a caring nation—recovering, remobilising and renewing health and social care in Scotland, be agreed to. Are we agreed?

Members:

No.

The Presiding Officer:

There will be a division.

There will be a short suspension to allow members to access the digital voting system.

17:13 Meeting suspended.

17:18 On resuming—

Members may cast their votes now.

Motion agreed to,

That the Parliament thanks Scotland’s NHS and social care staff for their heroic efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic; recognises that the pandemic has been the biggest shock that the NHS and social care services have ever faced; notes that the NHS is currently under intense pressure due to the pandemic and that primary care, ambulance and hospital staff are working around the clock to deliver care to patients; recognises that well in excess of £1 billion has already been provided this year to address COVID-19 pressures in health and social care and that further funding will be allocated to support service pressures; welcomes the £1 billion NHS Recovery Plan that will significantly increase NHS inpatient, outpatient and diagnostic capacity; notes that this increase includes recruiting an additional 1,500 staff to work in the network of National Treatment Centres; recognises that the Plan puts particular focus on early cancer diagnostics and referral pathways as well as child and adult mental health services; agrees that the mental health and wellbeing of health and social care staff is a key priority and central focus of the Plan; supports the commitment to create a National Care Service; recognises that ethical commissioning, and setting terms and conditions that meet the Fair Work principles, could greatly improve how social care is delivered, and believes that the voices of lived experience, including those who access support and care, the workforce and unpaid carers must be central to the ongoing consultation on the service.

The final question is, that motion S6M-01219, in the name of Ben Macpherson, on approval of a Scottish statutory instrument, be agreed to.
