Rennie: FM has audacity to say she’s not surprised wait times are getting worse


Speaking after the First Minister admitted she wasn’t surprised that treatment waiting times are getting worse during FMQs, Scottish Liberal Democrat Leader Willie Rennie said:

“I’ve badgered the First Minister to tackle appalling long waits for treatment for years.

“Her supposed ‘guarantee’ has been in place for almost a decade, but all we have now is a waiting times plan that tells people they will have to wait longer.

“The government is breaking its own treatment time law 200 times a day and the First Minister has the audacity to say she’s not surprised things are getting worse. What hope does that offer for patients across the country.”
