Responding to the release of the independent review report into the future of Monklands Hospital, Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard MSP said:

“Excluding the existing site from further consultation on the future of Monklands hospital is nothing short of a betrayal of the local community.

“Campaigners have been vindicated by the acknowledgement that the existing process has not meaningfully engaged the public - so this further attempt by the SNP to exclude the existing site from the next stage of consultation, and gerrymander the outcome, is a mistake.

“A further consultation on appropriate sites is clearly needed, and the process going forward should be as open and transparent as possible. That’s why all options must remain on the table.

“Scottish Labour pressure delivered this review – we are clear that Monklands hospital should remain in the Monklands community, and that is what we will continue to fight for.”
