SNP Government Invest £50 Million in NHS Diagnostics and Care

The NHS in North Ayrshire and Arran is set to benefit from a share of a £50 million Scotland-wide investment to help deliver swift treatment and diagnostics.

This extra funding is part of a package of measures to reduce waiting times. It will also fund two independent diagnostic leads who will improve co-ordination across the country.

Scotland already invests more per head of population than anywhere else in the UK.

Tory-led England and Labour-led Wales continue to lag behind Scotland, including on accident and emergency (A & E) waiting times, where Scotland has had the lowest waiting times for over three years.

Commenting, Kenneth Gibson MSP said:

The staff of Scotland’s NHS do a tremendous job day in day out. This funding boost will support a package of measures to deliver further improvements.

The SNP Government is already committed to investing an extra £2,000 million above inflation by the end of this parliament – the highest funding commitment of any party at the last election – and we already invest more in our NHS per head of population than anywhere else in the UK. That’s one of the reasons why Scotland’s A&E’s continue to have the best performance of anywhere in the UK for the last three years.”
