Rona Mackay: Bliss is doing incredible work for premature babies

MSP Rona Mackay has praised the work of a charity that helps premature and sick babies after a parliamentary reception in Holyrood.

Before MSPs and stakeholders on January 24, Bliss Scotland revealed findings of a ‘Baby Report 2017: An opportunity to deliver improvements in neonatal care’.

The charity is calling for urgent action to address a rack of problems premature babies are facing.

Ms Mackay said: “Bliss Scotland is an incredible charity and I have heard how they help not just premature and sick babies, but the families surrounding them.

“The reception in the Scottish Parliament was a fantastic event — it was very productive to meet many of its stakeholders and learn more about the charity.

“Children are at the very top of my parliamentary agenda, so it was a great privilege to attend this reception held by Bliss.”
