To ask the Scottish Government, in light of reported criticisms that a consultation held by NHS Tayside into local mental health services did not take into account the majority of views submitted, what consideration it has given to requesting that the consultation be re-opened.
Answered by: Shona Robison 9 January 2018
We expect NHS Tayside and the local Integration Joint Boards (IJB) to provide high quality mental health care and support to patients in the area. The published consultation response on the future of Tayside mental health services takes into account all views and responses submitted during the process and we understand that a final decision on these services will be taken by Perth and Kinross IJB in the new year.
