S5W-06447: Jackie Baillie (Dumbarton)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 23 January 2017

To ask the Scottish Government which neonatal intensive care units will be retained when their number is reduced to three over the next five years.

Answered by: Shona Robison 3 February 2017

We will be consulting with the regions across Scotland on the best model for delivery, taking account of the population concentrations, geography and other services provided in the centres to give the most appropriate care for our smallest and sickest babies. There will be no reduction in the numbers of Neonatal Units in Scotland.
