Rise in Health Care Staff in NHS Grampian

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP, Stewart Stevenson has welcomed new statistics published today showing an increase of 52 since last year in hospital and community healthcare workers in NHS Grampian.

Under the SNP government, NHS Scotland staffing levels are at a new record high, increasing by 9.1% over the last 10 years. Nursing and midwifery is also at historically high levels with 2,378 more dedicated staff.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said,

“Under the Scottish Government, NHS staff numbers have risen to record highs - with more consultants, nurses and midwives now delivering essential care for the people of Scotland.

“Healthcare is a key priority for the SNP and I am really encouraged that there are 52 more dedicated health care workers working in NHS Grampian compared to last year – bringing the total number to 12,047.

“In government, the SNP has ensured that NHS staff numbers have risen to record highs, with nearly 140,000 staff working in hospitals and community healthcare throughout NHS Scotland – an increase of 9.1% over the last 10 years.

“With an increase in student nursing and midwifery intakes over the last four years, we are also keeping an eye on the future. The SNP is committed to both record investment in our health service and ensuring the necessary reforms to deliver the right staff, with the right skills, in the right place, long into the future.”
