Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Bob Doris (Glasgow) (SNP) I will try to be brief and to stick to amendment 6.

I am content that the general power under section 85(5) would be adequate in relation to the commencement order in section 22B, which was added to the bill at stage 2 by my amendment. The vast majority of section 22B remains fully intact...

Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Bob Doris (Glasgow) (SNP) Can I just check something? It may have been a turn of phrase that Dr Simpson used. He has made a lot of good points, but he spoke about a failure in the regulations and I would like to clarify whether the regulations strengthen the position of dispensing GPs in remote or rural areas.



Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Bob Doris That is helpful. I just wanted to be clear that there is not a failure in the regulations. Dr Simpson and others perhaps think that there may be an opportunity to go further, either now or later, if the regulations are reviewed at a later date. The fact that the regulations strengthen the position o...

Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Bob Doris You mentioned clinical pharmacists. In theory, is there anything to stop community pharmacists from forming such a relationship with GP practices in remote and rural areas? Are they excluded from doing that?



Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Bob Doris It is about who is best placed to provide the service in that area.



Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Bob Doris Financial sustainability is a key criterion. I am not talking about GPs per se. My colleague Gil Paterson has business experience that I do not have, but I suspect that if you ask a dispensing GP in a remote or rural area whether their dispensary is vital to their sustainability, every single one wi...

Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Bob Doris That explanation is much more nuanced and has helped me to understand the position; I lacked understanding before.

It helped that Mr Thomson put it on the record that there is no cross-subsidy. The issue is more about how we retain in certain localities GPs who might for whatever reason o...

Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Bob Doris I am just trying to understand the bigger picture. I have no further questions.



Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Bob Doris We have just had a question-and-answer session that very much relates to the issues raised in the petition. I suspect that the committee will look—we obviously discuss our work plan in private in normal circumstances—at prescription for excellence again in the future. It is very much about the new r...

Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Bob Doris The briefing note indicates that about 450 stakeholders took part in what was quite a substantial consultation exercise but that there were only 12 “substantive replies”. Why were there so few?
