Speaking in response to comments from the chair of the BMA in Scotland Dr Lewis Morrison which included "warning lights about the state of our health service", the health spokesperson for the Scottish Liberal Democrats Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:
"We must put recovery first and give the NHS the support it needs.
"This is a stark warning.
"The Scottish NHS was missing its waiting targets before the pandemic.
"It will take huge effort and dedication from staff to turn this around and catch up. Scottish ministers needs to commit to find the money needed to make this happen."
