To ask the Scottish Government how many on-call NHS services have been put out to private tender.

Answered by: Shona Robison 10 May 2017

The Scottish Government does not hold information on how many on-call NHS services have been put out to private tender.

The Scottish Government funds NHS 24, a special health board, to provide the 111 service in Scotland. There is a private tender process for the 111 service in England and Wales. This does not exist in Scotland for Out of Hours Services.
