Edinburgh Lib Dem candidates talk health, environment & cooperation


The Scottish Lib Dems' Spring 2020 Political Party Broadcast is out and features 3 of our 6 Edinburgh candidates in the 2021 Scottish Parliament elections talking about what matters to them. Watch the video on YouTube (2m 40s).

Edinburgh Western's Alex Cole-Hamilton raises the children waiting a year on mental waiting lists.

Scotland's NHS is under real pressure. We need a step change in mental health services, the recruitment of more GPs and better social care. We need to substantially increase investment in child andadolescent mental health services to enable the step-change in prevention, early detection, range of treatment and recovery that is desperately needed in Edinburgh and beyond.

Edinburgh Central's Bruce Wilson talks about the importance of working together with friends and neighbours.

We need to take Scotland forward on issues like building the best education system in the world and tackling the inequalities that limit life chances for so many people. We will move on from the independence debate to bring unity, healing the divisions of the referendum.

Edinburgh Eastern's Jill Reilly stressed the need for bold climate action.

Climate change, pollution and the degradation of the natural world pose someof the greatest threats to the wellbeing and freedom of present and future generations that modern society has ever seen. We are trustees of our world, and our society, and must pass on a sustainable legacy which will benefit future generations.
