Responding to plans for the creation of a new website, which will allow patients to compare hospitals and choose whether to request their operation from a different hospital, Scottish Liberal Democrat health spokesperson Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:

"The more easily potential patients can access information on waiting times, infection rates and staffing, the better.

"It's critical however that the government doesn't use this ranking database as the foundation for yet more centralisation.

"We want to see services across the country be the best they can be. People in remote and rural areas have the right to expect quality care close to home."
