Ayr hospital commitment from SNP

Local SNP MSP Adam Ingram has welcomed commitments to Ayr A&E unit from the Scottish Government made in the Scottish Parliament this week.

Responding to a debate on the recent threat to trauma and orthopaedics at Ayr Hospital the Public Health Minister Michael Matheson said that the Government would not countenance any proposal from Ayrshire & Arran Health Board which seek to undermine the Government’s commitment to build on the strengths of existing services.

Adam Ingram said: “These are cast iron commitments from the Scottish Government securing the future of dedicated A&E units.”
