S5W-17755: Jackie Baillie (Dumbarton)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 18 July 2018

To ask the Scottish Government whether NHS Education for Scotland has withdrawn training accreditation for junior doctors at (a) Vale of Leven, b) Inverclyde Royal and (c) the Royal Alexandria Hospital and, if so, whether prior warning was given to the NHS board and, if improvements were recommended, for what reason these were not carried out by the board.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 2 August 2018

No; all three hospitals continue to hold training accreditation and NHS Education for Scotland (NES) continues to place trainee doctors in these hospitals. NES officials continue to work collaboratively with Greater Glasgow & Clyde Health Board to improve the educational quality of medical training, and the supervision of trainees, in certain sites across the Board area.
