Key issues facing Scotland’s health and social care services


Public urged to share their thoughts with parliament committee.

Members of the public are being asked to get in touch with the Health, Social Care and Sport Committee to suggest questions and issues they would like to raise with the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care.

Michael Matheson MSP, the Cabinet Secretary for NHS Recovery, Health and Social Care has been invited to appear before the Committee on 12 September and the Committee is keen to learn what questions members of the public and those who work in health and care would like the Committee to ask him.

The Committee has launched a consultation where members of the public can suggest questions and issues related to health and social care. 

Only questions that are relevant to the Cabinet Secretary’s areas of responsibility – namely, NHS recovery from the pandemic, health and social care – will be considered for possible selection.

Clare Haughey MSP, convener of the Health, Social Care and Sport Committee, said: “Our Committee is responsible for scrutinising the Scottish Government’s delivery of health and social care, and this is a great opportunity for members of the public and those who work in the health and care sector to suggest questions for the Committee to put to the Cabinet Secretary.

“Your questions will help to inform our scrutiny of the Scottish Government’s approach to developing and delivering health and social care policy in Scotland.

“The consultation is open to all so please get in touch.”

The deadline for submitting questions is Friday, August 25, 2023.
