PARLIAMENTARY BRIEFING - National Care Service

06 September 2021
The Scottish Government is proposing significant changes to the way in which health and care services are delivered in Scotland at a time when services are seeking to recover and remobilise after the Covid-19 pandemic.
RCN Scotland is concerned that with such a significant proposal, policy makers do not lose sight of other priorities. For any health and social care reforms to be effective, the Scottish Government must first address workforce pressures by implementing the Health and Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Act 2019 and deliver fair pay for nursing staff working in all settings.
