LOCHHEAD WELCOMES STEP UP IN MATERNITY & CHILDREN'S SERVICES AT DR GRAY'S

23/11/2018  

Richard Lochhead MSP has welcomed NHS Grampian’s announcement that the Special Care Baby Unit at Dr Gray’s will reopen and a full seven day service in the Children’s Ward can now be restored. 

Moray’s SNP MSP said:

“I’m really pleased that NHS Grampian is in a position to step up the services available at Dr Gray’s with the Special Care Baby Unit set to reopen and a seven day service in the Children’s Ward to be restored.   This is certainly welcome progress which I hope can help more women deliver their babies in Moray, and of course for more children to be cared for locally too. 

“There is however still a large gap to plug due to the lack of junior doctors choosing to do their training at Dr Gray’s and NHS Grampian must look at every option available to them, including locum cover, to plug this gap whilst we await the long term plan to kick in as this will allow more babies to be born in Moray.”
