Disappointing response (Brenda Wilcock)

I was disappointed to see another intemperate letter from Mike McDonnell directed towards Tavish Scott. Tavish’s health consultation gave rise to some 800 responses from ordinary residents like myself, and is not an issue he is taking lightly.

Mr McDonnell conveniently forgets that Tavish arranged for Shetland GPs to meet Shona Robison, the health minister as reported by this paper in March. Tavish is in regular conversation with practicing GPs.

It now seems that some do not want any questions asked about this SNP government, their record on health and their underfunding of a service we all depend on.
