Scottish parliament election 2016

Secure our NHS

Ahead of the 2016 Scottish Parliament election, BMA Scotland called on all parties to stop using the NHS as a political tool and to make realistic and honest pledges to ensure the future of high quality health care in Scotland.

We published a manifesto and accompanying briefing setting out the areas we believe politicians needed to take action and on 24 March held a health hustings with each of the parties’ health spokespeople.

With the election now complete, BMA Scotland will be pressing Scotland’s politicians to support the health of people in Scotland and secure our NHS.
