[S3M-2863] Decision Time — 13 Nov 2008 at 17:01

This looks like the vote on S3M-2863

The description in the bulletin on 2008-11-12 is:

*S3M-2863 Cathy Jamieson: Health Funding—That the Parliament condemns the emerging cuts to frontline services in Scotland’s health service as a direct result of the SNP’s budget settlement, which provides the NHS with its lowest spending increase since devolution; notes with concern that NHS boards across Scotland are facing extreme financial pressure as evidenced by the comments of NHS Highland that it needs to find savings that "would mean consideration of issues that were previously thought to be scary or untouchable"; further notes that NHS Shetland is reviewing the number of nurses, cancer care services and mental health funding to generate budget savings and that the Director of Finance and Planning at NHS Forth Valley has reported that the size of the savings required "will impact on direct patient services and on staffing levels", and therefore calls on the Scottish Government to take urgent action to ensure that NHS boards receive sufficient funding in order that they are not forced to consider cuts to frontline services.
