To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-08480 by Shona Robison on 29 March 2017, by what date the (a) Short Life Working Group's review and (b) code of practice will be published.
Answered by: Shona Robison 26 June 2017
We continue to work in conjunction with the BMA and NHS Boards to produce a national Code of Practice for NHS Boards when a contractor wishes the Board to acquire property or take on the contractor’s responsibilities under an existing lease. The GP Premises Short Life Working Group's recommendations are currently being used for internal consideration and will be published alongside the Code of Practice later in 2017.
