Fiona Welcomes Treatment Centre Investment Announcement for St John’s Hospital
Local Constituency MSP Fiona Hyslop has welcomed the announcement made by the First Minister during her Keynote Speech at SNP Conference in Aberdeen this weekend (Saturday, 17th October) that St John’s Hospital in Livingston will receive a share of £200 million to build an elective treatment centre.
“I am delighted that St John’s Hospital in Livingston will receive a share of this investment which will see an elective centre built in Livingston. The centre will specialise in acute care for procedures such as hips, knees and cataracts and also to alleviate the pressure from the emergency wards.
“This is a firm commitment from the First Minister to expand services at St John’s Hospital and as we in West Lothian have one of the fastest growing populations in Scotland, I know that this will be welcome news to my constituents.”
