Submitted by: Jackie Baillie, Dumbarton, Scottish Labour.
Date lodged: Tuesday, November 16, 2021

Supported by: Paul Sweeney
Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Wednesday, November 17, 2021

As an amendment to motion S6M-02139 in the name of Sandesh Gulhane (Removing the Cap on Funded Places for Frontline Medical Students), insert at end "; recognises that the Scottish Government has presided over historic workforce planning failures across the NHS, with warnings of shortages and staff burnout long before the pandemic; considers that, as well as recruitment, there is an immediate need to improve retention of staff, following reports that many are planning to leave their profession; calls on the Scottish Government to ensure that basic facilities, such as hot meals and rest spaces, are available to all staff, and to improve access to specialised mental health support for the workforce, and recommends that the Scottish Government offers a working time review to every staff member considering retirement, thereby offering more flexible working arrangements, and calls on the expertise of retired nurses and medical professionals willing to return to the NHS to increase workforce capacity over winter.”
