FMQs - 10th October 2019

Local MSP Brian Whittle raised concerns about the shortfall in staff for Psychiatric services in Scotland at First Minister's Questions. He highlighted correspondance on the number of vacant posts, and a report on the number of psychiatrists in children and adolescent support expected to retire. He finished by asking "When will the Scottish Government produce a realistic workforce plan, that can meet these escalating challenges, and ensure that our children recieve the mental health care they deserve?"
