On the 9th of February, the Scottish Trade Union Congress (STUC) & a number of civil society organisations published an open letter requesting the National Care Service Bill be paused. In response, COSLA’s Health and Social Care Spokesperson, Councillor Paul Kelly, commented:

“The National Care Service Bill has clearly caused great concern across Scottish civil society, reflected by today’s letter from a breadth of organisations. With our care services facing immense pressures, COSLA Leaders too have asked for the NCS Bill to be paused so that investment in our front-line services can take priority over disruptive structural reforms. We hope the Scottish Government will reflect on this important intervention from key partners.”
