  1. There’s over 20,000 hospital beds in Scotland, that over a month gives roughly 600,000 capacity. I’m thinking that using just under 10%( roughly) of that capacity to keep people safe is a pretty good use of that resource.

  2. Reporting Scotland will be leading with the praise for NHS Scotland ( and by extension the Scottish Government ) from Gullane and Baillie , who will be unstinting in their admiration for the continuing good news story that is the Scottish Health Service .
