About The Committee
The Health and Sport Committee examines the Scottish Government’s health policy, the NHS in Scotland, sport and other matters within its remit.
The Committee has nine members and is convened by Duncan McNeil, Labour MSP for Greenock and Inverclyde.
The Committee determines its own subjects for inquiry and also deals with any proposals for legislation, statutory instruments or petitions referred to it. Further details of the Committee’s work programme can be found on the Current Business section of the webpage.
The Committee normally meets on a Tuesday morning. Seats in the public gallery can be booked in advance by contacting Visitor Services.
The Scottish Parliament Health and Sport Committee has agreed to begin a new phase of its themed work on health inequalities by holding a short inquiry on early years.
The Committee has also agreed to publish a call for written evidence.
