Cole-Hamilton: Happy clappy Tories hurting GPs

Speaking ahead of a Scottish Conservative debate on GP services tomorrow, Scottish Liberal Democrat health spokesperson Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said: 

"SNP mismanagement is posing huge challenges to community health services but the Scottish Conservatives' support for a hard Brexit will only exacerbate the problem. The Royal College of GPs has warned of the dire consequences of losing more than 200 GPs from elsewhere in the EU. 

"Scottish Conservatives can't hide from the actions of their colleagues in Westminster and tomorrow we will challenge the Scottish Conservatives to back our amendment. People didn't vote for their GP to go or to restrict our NHS' ability to hire the staff it needs. 

"The Scottish Conservatives are content to issue happy clappy press releases about the threat to GPs yet have done nothing to stop their colleagues in Westminster voting for a hard Brexit that would be devastating for the health service."
