Stevenson Hails Budget's Good news for North East Dental Services

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed this week’s budget spending review by the Scottish Government which contained much good news for health and dental services in the North East.

The news came as John Swinney MSP, the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, made his announcement to the Scottish Parliament today, which included the establishment of a third dental school in Aberdeen and improvements to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

Commenting Mr. Stevenson, a long-time campaigner for increased dental services, said;

“I am delighted at the Scottish Government’s announcements of a new third dental school in Aberdeen plus improvements to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. This comes as excellent news for health services in the North East and for the people of Banff & Buchan.

“While Labour and the Lib Dems for years paid lip service to establishing a dental school at Foresterhill and failed to take any firm action, the Scottish Government has now taken the initiative and committed to a new school in Aberdeen.

“Since elected I have consistently campaigned for increased dental services in the North East. A new dental school for Aberdeen will go a long way to increasing the number of dentists and improving dental provisions here in the North East and across Scotland. I strongly welcome this much-needed boost to our dental services.”
