The Scottish Government have announced an extra £9 million funding for A&E services.
The NHS has been under winter strain during the summer months.
There is now a real concern that A&E units could be thrown back to square one this winter as demand naturally increases.
SNP ministers are once again applying a tiny sticking plaster in a panic.
A&E services wouldn't need these annual bailouts if the Scottish Government had got a grip of the staffing crisis, properly supported doctors and nurses and provided solid funding for the NHS in the first place.
This is the most effective way of preventing waiting times soaring each winter.
