Parliamentary Briefing - Stage 2 debate Health and Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Bill

28 January 2019
The RCN welcomes many of the amendments lodged ahead of stage 2, which it feels would improve and strengthen the Bill.
Ahead of the publication of the Bill, the RCN set out six key tests (set out in this briefing) which the legislation should meet if it is to have a positive impact on patients and staff in practice. A number of amendments lodged for stage 2 would, if agreed to, mean that the six tests would be reflected in legislation. Many of the amendments would also address areas of concern which the RCN expressed at stage 1.
