As the election campaign for GE19 gears up, and focus inevitably shifts back to healthcare and the provision of services, it's worth highlighting one of the greatest threats to healthcare in Scotland, and the disastrous impact that the early creeping privatisation of care in England and Wales is having. In 2012, the Health and Social Care Act was implemented and paved the way for increased private...
There are few things worse than watching badly scripted parodies of real hospital life, but this week Scottish Labour managed to create one. Aside from the dodgy mood lighting, the broadcast took serious issues within healthcare and over-simplified the solutions.In it, Labour’s health team (real stories, not real doctors, nurses or patients) exemplified some difficult and heart-breaking...

As the country waits with bated breath at the outcome of tonight's 'meaningful vote' on Brexit it is worth remembering that no Brexit is good for healthcare in the UK. Our infographic highlights the major areas that Brexit will impact on health, and nothing on the table at present mitigates these issues.
Continuing our series on the history of healthcare in Scotland is todays breakdown of the Dewar Report - the blueprint for the Highlands and Islands Medical Service, and eventually the newly formed NHS.
All four UK National Health Services face the same challenges of increasing demand, workforce shortages and tight finances. However, last year's Nuffield Trust report, 'Learning from Scotland's NHS', highlighted how health services north and south of the border have diverged significantly since devolution - in structure, financing and quality improvement. The most fundamental difference is that...
Today marks the first annual 999 Day to celebrate the contribution of the Emergency Services!The event is due to begin in Manchester at 9am (09:00 on 9/9) and will mark the vital contributions our Emergency sector workers make to keeping us safe. A special thanks goes out to all those involved in keeping people safe and healthy during the troublesome weather across Scotland earlier this year....
‘General practice is at the crossroads. The general practitioner…finds himself more isolated than ever before from his colleagues in specialist and consulting practice, is plagued with paper work…there is a grave risk that general practice will deteriorate and cease to attract into its ranks a goodly proportion of men and women of first class ability…It is infinitely harder to be an able...

The shambolic handling of the EU Withdrawl bill with respect to devolved administration's has stoked fury across Scotland this morning. With Labour MPs having been 'sent home' by whips it was left to SNP, green and a rebel Labour veteran to defend Scotland's interests in an apparent power grab by Westminster. It is difficult to understand how the vote, in which debate was limited to 20mins and...
We at NHSforYES are extremely excited by the launch of the Scottish Independence Foundation (SIF), the new financial body seeking to help support the grassroots of the independence movement. By removing party politics from the equation, the door is now open for wider support for all areas of the Indy camp in bringing forward innovative and exciting projects to help convince those we might seek to...
The Sunday Times reported today (03/06/2018) that officials working for David Davis' Brexit Department are preparing for a 'Doomsday Brexit' scenario where the UK could see shortages of food, fuel and essential medicines. The scenario reportedly speaks of Dover collapsing 'on day one' and goes on to describe a situation (reportedly being spoken of as not even the worse-case scenario) where...
The Royal College of Physicians have released urgent information regarding recruitment to ST3 posts across medical specialties. The problem, in which many junior doctors have been offered jobs in error, stems from a transcribing issue involving interview scores being moved from one system to another. Some doctors, who have been offered jobs over the last few weeks, now risk being told that the...
Today NHSforYES was out in the streets of Glasgow along with (if the estimates are correct) around 80,000 friends from across the independence movement in a show of solidarity that the dream of Scottish Independence is not dead. Thanks to everyone who marched with us and to everyone who stopped and spoke to us at Glasgow Green! You all helped make our day and showed us just how strong the support...
There has been a frantic rush over the last 24 hours to prove that cardboard burns. The strangest part of it all has been some people's genuine surprise that this is true. If you immolate a cardboard box, it does indeed burn. Amidst the embers, the smoke and the wild rush of experts hoping to discredit the benefits of a box of free items designed to give every child in Scotland an equal footing in...
