Scottish Labour condemns the decision to close the Brodie Ward at the Royal Cornhill Hospital in Aberdeen.

In a time where mental health problems are on the rise, partly as a result of the policies implemented by a Tory government, it is crucial that support services are adequately funded and fully staffed.  

The SNP cannot be allowed to get away with continuously cutting the budget of vital services like the NHS. We know from the recent Accounts Commision report that children's referrals, in particular, have increased 22% in the last five years, but rejections due to a lack of services have also gone up by 24%. Cuts have consequences, and every patient denied treatment is a risk to themselves and others.

The Labour Party fundamentally believes in a health service that benefits everyone. Under a Labour government, money will be invested for the many, ensuring that free and quality support is provided to everyone.

Scottish Labour will be campaigning for #NoMoreClosures in the coming weeks, engaging with communities who are impacted by ward and community service closures. By signing our petition, we will send a message to the Scottish Government that Aberdeen wants #NoMoreClosures in our city.
