Brexit is having a real impact on our NHS as numbers of EU and non-EU nationals applying to be a nurse is in freefall and there is a mass exodus of EU nurses since the Brexit vote. The best way to protect our NHS is to prevent Brexit.

Our public services and public health relies on the skills of people outside Scotland who want to call it home. They pay taxes, contribute to our communities and staff our services. The UK government is turning them away.

The response from the Secretary of State? You tell me. It wasn’t an answer or a non-answer. More of an irrelevant ramble. He is supposed to be standing up for Scotland.
