Meeting of the Parliament 29 January 2015 : 29 January 2015
John Scott (Ayr) (Con)

The cabinet secretary will be well aware of growing numbers of patients in NHS Ayrshire and Arran who are not being treated within the 12-week waiting time. Urology patients are having to travel to Glasgow for treatment and more than 1,000 dermatology patients have not been treated within the 12-week period. Regrettably, the services of Medinet are having to be used on a growing scale due to a failure in recruitment in NHS Ayrshire and Arran. How is the recruitment problem, which is common to many health boards, being dealt with at a local and national level?

Mr Kelly, have you finished?
