Unite lobby over NHS cuts

Today I was delighted to have been sworn in as MSP for Mid Scotland and Fife.

Having represented the region since 2007 I am looking forward to another session standing up for constituents from my home region.

That started today when I met with union representatives from Unite and Unison over cuts coming to NHS Fife.

It was recently announced that cuts of £30m will have to be made to Fife’s NHS over the next two financial years, putting greater pressure onto our health provision and putting jobs and services at risk.

It is vital that we all work together to ensure that all the staff and patients within NHS Fife have all the help and support that they need and I look forward to working with Unite and Unison towards stopping these cuts.
