NHS 'delivery tsar'
The Health Minister, Andy Kerr, is to set up a new delivery group which will have the power to intervene directly to order health boards to meet targets which will be set by the Executive.

Under the plans which will be answerable directly to Kevin Woods, the chief executive of NHS Scotland the delivery group will bring together into a single team the Executive's National Waiting Times Unit, the Centre for Change and Innovation and the Performance Management Division.

Andy Kerr said “He had been very impressed by the skill and dedication of NHS staff.

“We need to focus more sharply to meet the needs of patients now and for the future. The setting and delivering of clear targets is essential.

“We need better long-term planning and a clearer approach to ensure that health boards are able and supported to deliver on those plans”.

Shona Robison, the Scottish National Party's health spokeswoman, backed the plan, but said Mr Kerr should not shirk responsibility for poor results. And Dr Nanette Milne, the Tories' spokeswoman, said: "This is more evidence of the Executive [trying] to micro-manage every aspect of our public services”.
