Hospital admissions are falling from more than 1 000 in September to 900 yesterday and way below the more than 2 000 in February. Staff absences have fallen for several weeks and are also far below the peaks. Infection levels have been plummeting for weeks to the lowest level in the UK by some way and vaccination levels are the highest in the UK.
So far, we’ve had soldiers doing, at best, 1% of vaccinations in June, driving 1.8% of non-emergency only ambulances in September, and now we hear that 86 personnel will boost NHS Scotland’s staffing of 160 000 by 0.05%.
The above BBC report tells us:
The request for support comes after soldiers were brought in to support the Scottish Ambulance Service in September.
but we never find out who made the request. Why don’t we know that?
Needless to say the Governor General and that MP/PG/media pundit get a chance to thank them and blame the SNP.
Imagine Humza Yousaf announced 0.05% more nurses or 1.8% more ambulance drivers. Would that be thought useful at all?
This is a con.
