Lib Dems attack Scot Gov NHS workforce planning

Responding to the Scottish Government's announcement of a new drive to recruit radiologists, Scottish Liberal Democrat health spokesperson Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:

"While this will provide a welcome boost to radiology services, it's clear that the Scottish Government's NHS workforce plan isn't up to scratch. Hundreds of posts are lying vacant for months on end as Nicola Sturgeon's decision to cut training places comes back to bite.

"Ministers need to urgently relieve the pressure on hardworking staff by giving them the support and resources they need, giving them a pay rise and delivering the sustainable workforce planning our NHS requires."
