SNP are failing the Scottish NHS health system

This what 10 years of the SNP has brought Scotland
Scottish Homecare Crisis: Leaked report reveals patients miss medication and go without food and water.
Patients in a huge swathe of Scotland's West Highlands have gone without food and water and missed doses of medication because there are not enough home carers to cover shifts, according to a leaked report seen by the Sunday Herald.
Vulnerable people have been left in bed for hours and had no personal care because Argyll and Bute health and social care partnership (HSCP) is dealing with a “home care crisis in Oban and the surrounding area”.
Minutes of the “Emergency Care at Home Meeting” called on September 12 by the HSCP reveal “the state of home care has reached critical” and the service users are at “high risk”. The leaked HSCP report said: “It is not always possible to ensure all scheduled visits are provided resulting in missed medication, no personal care being provided, clients left in bed for prolonged periods of time and clients going without food or fluids for prolonged periods of time.”
