Patients are suffering while the SNP shamefully dithers | Kevin McKenna | Opinion | The Guardian
One senior health professional told me last week: “Yes, there is a backlog for operations, but the issue is the front and back door – not the bit in the middle. They are trying to solve the wrong problem and bringing on these new centres will only add to the problem. In addition, there is a huge problem with a lack of doctors across parts of the system. If they are moving planned care into these new elective centres, how are they going to staff them?”
