Local MSP Urges Residents To Make Their Views Known On Maternity Services Review

Following the announcement by Grampian NHS of a review of maternity services across the region, Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson is urging people across the constituency to take part.

Commenting on the review Mr Stevenson said:

“Reviews and consultations will be occurring across a whole range of critical frontline services as public authorities try to get to grips with the major budget cuts coming from Westminster. It is extremely important that the views, experiences and comments of the people of Banff & Buchan are heard.

“Banff & Buchan has a history of strong support for Maternity Services, most notably with the successful campaign in Fraserburgh during 2006/2007 to retain maternity services at the town’s hospital. That hard fought campaign will undoubtedly be a spur to get responses in for the current review.

“I know that NHS Grampian’s Chief Executive, Richard Carey, is keenly aware of the importance that people here attach to local maternity services and I will be reinforcing that view as part of the consultation process.”
