Yes campaign 'gains some traction' on NHS debate

By Debi Edward: Scotland Correspondent

It is perhaps in light of the momentum that the Yes campaign has gained that the No campaign went on the attack today.

They distributed a document - leaked by an NHS doctor - which states:

The Better Together campaign claims that flies in the face of their rival's claims that only a Yes vote can protect the NHS from cuts.

Well, the Scottish government have said they are the ones protecting and increasing the NHS budget in Scotland, and that only independence can offer the health service a brighter future.

The Yes campaign really have been able to gain some traction on this NHS debate despite health being a devolved issue - the Better Together campaign say it's "the biggest lie" of the referendum so far.
