SNP REJECTS & PROTECTS SCOTLAND’S NHS FROM IDEOLOGICAL AGENDA
Commenting on the revelation that the Tory/LibDem London government has set aside nearly £1.7bn this year for reorganisation plans – more than seven times what it aims to save on management – SNP MSP Dr Ian McKee – a member of the Scottish Parliament’s Health Committee – said it was an outrageous waste of money in these financially troubled times and was an ideological chimera which was flatly rejected by the SNP.
Commenting Dr McKee said:
“These figures are astronomical in these financially troubled times. When cut backs are being threatened across the board by the Tory/LibDem government because of Labour’s economic mismanagement it is unbelievable that such money will be wasted on yet more postcode health care in England.
“This underlines why it is welcome that Scotland has an SNP Government protecting us from these ideological chimeras. A Scottish Government that is pursuing a better, more efficient healthcare policy for all the people of Scotland.
“The UK Government’s disruptive and ideologically-driven experimentation is the very last thing the Scottish NHS needs – it is now clear what the Tories and LibDems would do to the Scottish health service if they were given the chance.”
