To ask the Scottish Government what discussions the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport has had with the chairman and chief executive of NHS Highland regarding the waiting times improvement plan published in October 2018.
Answered by: Jeane Freeman 27 November 2018
I have not held any direct discussions on the Waiting Times Improvement Plan with the Chair and Chief Executive of NHS Highland. When I have met collectively with all Chairs and Chief Executive of NHS Boards in recent months, the Waiting Times Improvement Plan has been discussed. However, my Officials are now working closely with all territorial Health Boards to ensure that they have appropriate plans in place to support the implementation of the Improvement Plan.
