Army to rescue NHS Scotland with boost of additional 0.25% to staffing, non-emergency drivers mind

express

Ben Wallace has promised ‘about 4 000 Armed Forces personnel across the UK to stop a winter ‘collapse’. So, pro rata, that will be around 400 for Scotland to add to our existing 160 000 NHS staff, 0.25%.

Wow, that’s double the current 0.125%!

Given that none of the earlier lot could do emergency callouts and that Lanarkshire only got 3 nurses recently, might this just be a continuation of what is no more than a PR stunt?

    Since they are also being deployed in England,does that mean that he regards Tory health policies there to be a failure as well?
    Shoogly peg comes to mind.

  2. Pity, they could not rescue people from Afghanistan. They could not organise a few more flights in time. That is their job. Ben Wallace the total failure. Another total Tory incompetent. Promoted about their capabilities. Huge remuneration. The Tories cut NHS funding from 2015 to 2020. They lied about Brexit and introduced Austerity, cutting Welfare and killing more people,
