I’m David Kerr, a Professor of Oncology and an ambassador for Local Recovery.
Throughout my career I have worked with the Scottish government to provide a plan for the future of the NHS and have striven to improve cancer services throughout the UK and many African nations. I know first-hand the brilliant work our health service does and the resources it needs.
The Covid-19 pandemic put our public services under incredible strain. Our doctors, nurses, teachers and police officers have been heroes through these difficult times. Now, they deserve the support, resources and funding they need.
Recovering from the disruption won’t be easy, but with the right investment in public services from the Scottish and UK governments we can help our communities get back on track.
I believe we deserve the best public services in the world, and together we can achieve that. We will advocate for local priorities so that we get the resources our towns, villages and neighbourhoods need.
