Commenting on the temporary closure of theatre space at Dr Gray's Hospital, Richard Lochhead MSP said:
“The temporary closure of theatre space at Dr Gray’s will be a big blow to patients who had appointments scheduled, particularly given that waiting times are longer than normal due to the pandemic.
“It is important to reassure the community that one theatre does remain open for emergencies.
“I’m in contact with NHS Grampian and am seeking assurances that they are taking urgent action to allow our local theatres to reopen, and birthing pool returned to use, as quickly as possible. I’m also asking for details as to the plans that are being put in place to ensure alternative arrangements are made for patients who have had procedures cancelled.”
