Commenting on the publication of the independent report on Maternity Services in Moray, local MSP Richard Lochhead said:
“This is a thorough report that arose out of the need to build back maternity services at Dr Gray’s. I thank the review group for their work and engagement with the Moray community and local staff, and I hope this effort will now be matched by NHS Grampian so that we can deliver the services that the people of Moray deserve.
“The review provides a roadmap to an enhanced maternity service, where up to 70% of babies are born locally compared to just 20% at the moment. However, the Health Secretary has said he doesn’t rule out any options at this stage as he considers the report and I will be keen to discuss with him how we accelerate the enhancements and address any obstacles to going further.
“The Health Secretary has helpfully offered to come to Moray to meet local stakeholders and community representatives to discuss the report.”
