Once again, we’re grateful to Shadowy Health Secretary, Miles Briggs, for exposing the SNP government’s failure to make more use of the private agencies which most Tories favour and often have shares in. See this parliamentary question and answer:
NHS Scotland has reduced spending on private agencies for locum neurologists by nearly 9% in one year. A near 10% increase in the FT staffing of neurologists must be helping.
What, the Scottish Tories are against NHS Scotland wasting money on private agencies? I don’t know what to think now.
