I was pleased to sit down with both the Chief Executive and Chairman of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, alongside my colleague Stuart McMillan MSP, to discuss health services in Inverclyde.
During the discussion, the health board indicated they will be working with elected representatives through stakeholder management as a way of keeping us informed of what’s happening with local health services. This includes the new mental health unit and Greenock Health Centre which will be welcome additions to local services in Inverclyde.
I believe the health board are keen to undertake more engagement and consultation with the public over the health services they receive and what actions can be taken to improve service delivery. This can only be a good thing as more constructive discussion with the public and health service users should bring about service delivery which is more responsive to Inverclyde and the west of Scotland.
