Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Mary Scanlon (Highlands and Islands) (Con) We will support the Government motion and the Labour amendment.

I would contest only one thing in the minister’s speech. ICT and digital technologies are not only for younger people. I say that as a silver surfer, but I was also made aware this week that even people in care homes use Skyp...

Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Mary Scanlon (Highlands and Islands) (Con) I have to say that I am finding this quite depressing. After all, it is 15 years since we first started to talk about integrated care working. I feel that I—and, indeed, the convener—have gone back to 1999 again, because we heard exactly the same comments from 1999 and 2002. It is depressing to sit ...

Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Mary Scanlon I do not have time to drill down into that as I have another two questions to ask, but I did not find that answer acceptable. We will move on.

Catriona Renfrew said that a coherent approach is needed. I am sure that you have all done your homework and looked at Audit Scotland’s report. Ex...

Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Mary Scanlon I appreciate that. I am just saying that the data is not there.



Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Mary Scanlon My second question is on Government commitments. I support—



Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Mary Scanlon No. It is about the fact that the budget has not been doubled but instead has gone down.

I have heard you so often talking to colleagues about the acute sector, Ms Renfrew, and I understand all of that, but there was also a commitment on health and social care. Was that a lesser commitme...

Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Mary Scanlon Yes.



Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Mary Scanlon Finally, let us look at exhibit 6 on page 21 of the report and the “Care Homes”, “Homecare” and “Other” sectors. From 2009-10, the budget has been falling, and I understand that the trend is still downwards in those three social care sectors. Exhibit 1 shows that, between 2010 and 2035, the populati...

Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Mary Scanlon I have a question on that point. I have just listened to everyone talking about the need to ensure that people get the right quality of care, and the need to watch the money. I am probably more familiar with the situation in Dundee and Angus than in Glasgow, but I am aware that someone will pay 80 p...

Public Audit Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Mary Scanlon You can speak on behalf of your council.
