Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Rhoda Grant (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) I wonder whether the cabinet secretary will clarify a statement that seems to run contrary to a comment by NHS Dumfries and Galloway, which has said:

“Following the concerns that have been raised nationally and internationally we have taken a local decision to suspend the use of meshes an...

Meeting of the Parliament 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Rhoda Grant On a point of order, Presiding Officer. In his answer to my question the cabinet secretary suggested that I was quoting from press reports. I quoted from a letter from NHS Dumfries and Galloway to the Public Petitions Committee, which is available on the Parliament’s website. Can you advise how the ...

Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Rhoda Grant (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) I congratulate Liz Smith on securing the debate. Her motion calls for the centenary of the Perth royal infirmary to be marked, and the debate does that. I am sure, however, that there will also be other local events to celebrate the centenary.

Perth royal infirmary is a district general h...

Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Rhoda Grant (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) I wonder whether there is a qualification attached to the registration. Is there a minimum qualification that those people need to attain? If so, how long does it take for someone with no previous qualification to get to that level?



Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Rhoda Grant Do you think that three years is adequate to allow people to qualify, given that they may not get the certification first time?



Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Rhoda Grant I have a couple of questions. The first is about when a GP and a pharmacist want to co-locate but other pharmacists in the area block that. What is the role of the community if it supports the co-location? How much credence is given to its wishes to have co-location?



Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Rhoda Grant What notice is taken of the community’s position? For example, a community might be keen to have co-location because it makes it easier for people who are, for example, travelling a distance and who might not want to have to go somewhere else to access the pharmacy. What credence is given to the com...

Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Rhoda Grant So the community representation will be taken seriously.



Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Rhoda Grant I have another question, which turns the thing slightly on its head. I welcome the regulations before us, as there are lots of issues that need to be dealt with. However, my view is that they do not deal with allowing patients in remote rural areas to access pharmacy services. People obviously want ...

Health and Sport Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Rhoda Grant So that is work in progress.
