On the 12th August 2017 I sent the following letter to Shona Robison, the Dear Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport for the Scottish Government:
Dear Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport,
PE01493 on a Sunshine Act for Scotland. Are the Scottish public being listened to?
PE1493, A Sunshine Act for Scotland was closed by the Scottish Parliament in March 2016.
The Scottish Health Council published its public engagement exercise the same month.
The Scottish Government’s last public statement about this matter was in your letter dated 22 March 2016. In this letter you confirmed that “a majority of participants felt that publication of financial payments to healthcare professionals should be mandatory. In terms of next steps, the Scottish Government will discuss the contents of this report with the appropriate regulators and scope out options of how mandatory publication of payments to healthcare professionals from industry could be delivered.”
