Commenting after the Health Secretary said government guidance on care homes was published in error, Scottish Labour’s health and social care spokesperson, Monica Lennon, said:

“If the revised care home guidance was issued by the Scottish Government in error on Friday, why was the Chief Nursing Officer sharing it on Twitter on Saturday and how did Jeane Freeman not know about it until journalists quizzed her on the testing aspect of the guidance on Sunday. This chaos cannot continue.

“The advice has now been removed from the government’s official website, which will no doubt leave many people confused about what the guidance should be. Meanwhile, the virus is spreading in care homes and more lives are at risk.

“Jeane Freeman must apologise and clear up the confusion by making an urgent statement in Parliament.”
