Edward Mountain MSP calls for Fairer Hospital TV Charges in Holyrood Debate
Today I led a Members’ debate in which I condemned the extortionate fees for bedside hospital TV.
I believe that the charges for bedside TV for short-stay patients is a rip off and for long-stay patients it is daylight robbery.
This has gone on for too long. Health boards like NHS Highland signed a contract for 15 years and we should not forget that none of the revenues raised by bedside TV providers goes back into our hospitals.
The Scottish Government must never let that happen again.
