*S1M-1116# Christine Grahame: Age Discrimination in the NHS-That the Parliament notes the recent survey by Pat Grant, consultant at Glasgow Western Infirmary's accident and emergency department, which identifies trends suggesting age discrimination in accident and emergency practice; further notes last year's Age Concern report Turning Your Back on Us, which also highlighted examples of age discrimination in the treatment of elderly people by the NHS, and the article by Dr Brian Williams, President of the British Geriatrics Society, in the Scottish Executive's May 2000 Health Bulletin, which cited evidence of age discrimination within the NHS; further notes the Scottish Executive's statement that the NHSiS does not discriminate against the elderly, and urges the Executive to initiate an immediate independent assessment of these and other reports and an immediate investigation of the alleged discriminatory practices, both at a national level and in each health board area, and to make these findings available to the Parliament at the earliest opportunity.
