Commenting on the news that 60 leading medical professionals have called on the UK Coalition Government to drop their damaging NHS reforms, Nicola Sturgeon said:
“The public, patients and practitioners can be very clear that these reforms will not apply in Scotland. Scotland’s National Health Service is independent and, as long as there is an SNP Government, it will be run in the interests of patients not profit.
“Privatisation may be the Tory way but it is not our way. I know how highly Scots value our NHS and under the SNP it will be protected.”
