Health and Sport Committee 30 September 2014 : Tuesday, September 30, 2014
Rhoda Grant (Highlands and Islands) (Lab)

I will ask a short question on the back of that. You talked about MHOs and the increase in the time that a nurse can detain somebody for before an MHO is present....

Health and Sport Committee 30 September 2014 : Tuesday, September 30, 2014
Rhoda Grant

In a lot of rural and remote areas, including Harris and many other islands, nurses are providing out-of-hours care, with no general practitioners on call at any ...

Health and Sport Committee 30 September 2014 : Tuesday, September 30, 2014
Rhoda Grant

Okay. My main question is about the named person. There are concerns about the position under the 2003 act if someone has not stated their decision not to have a ...

Health and Sport Committee 30 September 2014 : Tuesday, September 30, 2014
Rhoda Grant

My understanding is that the bill provides for a more proactive approach; however, if that approach is not taken, we go back to the provisions in the 2003 act, wh...

Meeting of the Parliament 24 September 2014 : Wednesday, September 24, 2014
Rhoda Grant (Highlands and Islands) (Lab)

Will the minister consider improving support to young carers through the education maintenance allowance? The EMA requires excellent attendance, which is difficul...

Meeting of the Parliament 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Rhoda Grant (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) Gender inequality is in-built in Scotland and throughout most of the world. There are notable exceptions, but those countries have worked hard to create an equal society.

In Scotland, the areas where power is wielded are male dominated and, without action, that will continue, because like...

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Rhoda Grant (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) Would it be fair to say that this new scare story seeks to divert attention from the Scottish Government’s privatisation of the NHS here in Scotland? [Laughter.]



Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Rhoda Grant Last year, there was a huge 23 per cent increase in spending on private healthcare in the NHS in Scotland. Does the cabinet secretary agree with Audit Scotland that that shows a strain in the system? Will he now take responsibility, accept Labour’s position and have a comprehensive review of the NHS...

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Rhoda Grant (Highlands and Islands) (Lab) The debate is welcome, but we should all remember that festivals are not just social occasions for enjoyment and recreation: they can have a huge impact on local economies. That is especially true in areas such as the one that I represent. In remote and rural areas where populations are much smaller...

Meeting of the Parliament 14 August 2014 : Thursday, August 14, 2014
Rhoda Grant I would certainly appreciate that, because I know that the competition has had a big impact on Dunoon, and it is really important that we try to get it back for the local economy, which has been disadvantaged over a period of time.

We have had additional events this year such as the Commo...
