To ask the Scottish Government, in light of the recommendations set out in the paper, The Best Start: A Five-Year Forward Plan for Maternity and Neonatal Care in Scotland, by what date the Implementation Programme Board will conclude its options appraisal of neonatal intensive care.

The options appraisal process is still underway and is moving into a testing phase shortly, after which the Programme Board will make its recommendations to me. No date has yet been set for this.
