POLICY: Scottish Parliament inquiry into seven day services in Scotland

01 February 2015
RCN Scotland written evidence to the Scottish Parliament’s Health and Sport Committee inquiry into seven day services in Scotland
This written evidence set out the RCN’s clear position that variation in patient care and outcomes outside of Monday to Friday core hours is unacceptable and must be addressed. 

The RCN does not advocate a model of healthcare where elective services are available 24/7. Rather we believe that where people have clinically urgent healthcare needs, outside of core hours, high quality care must be available where they need it most, whether this is within hospital or in the community.
If you have any comments or would like to find out more information then please contact the RCN Scotland Policy team by emailing them at policyscotland@rcn.org.uk or by filling in the attached feedback form and sending it to Policy, RCN Scotland, 42 South Oswald Road, Edinburgh, EH9 2HH
