National Care Service Delay

Scotland's health secretary has confirmed the government has delayed its flagship plan to set up a National Care Service by three years saying that the Scottish government needed "more time" to work with councils.

 

In a bid to avoid costs rising to an estimated £2.2bn, ministers have proposed scaling back the scheme.

 

The Scottish government had described it as the "biggest public service reform in Scotland since devolution".
