NHS satisfaction up

Satisfaction with the NHS in Scotland has increased significantly in the last decade.

An official survey of almost 1,500 people found that 61% were either very or quite satisfied with the NHS, compared with 40% in 2005.

Health Secretary Alex Neil welcomed the findings, which he attributed to an increase in NHS staffing and a reduction in waiting times.
