James Calder, prospective Parliamentary candidate for Dunfermline has called for better investment in NHS Fife. Deficiencies have included a big shortage of GPs in Fife leading to long waiting times for patients.

James has commented, “Under the SNP, the NHS in Scotland has gone backwards, is underfunded and has not had the care it needs. Frontline staff in NHS Fife have been doing  fantastic job considering the limited resources they have, but I call on the Scottish Government to do more to help them.”

“We need a Scottish Government that will do more –  people in Fife and Scotland deserve better!”

Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie also mentioned, “I have conducted a survey of all GPs and have raised the issue with the First Minister in Parliament. I believe the SNP took their eye off the ball and I am backing a plan to recruit over 700 GPs in 5 years.”
