Independence could be "very positive" for people's health if it left them feeling they had more control over their lives, Scotland's former top doctor said.
Sir Harry Burns, who stepped down as chief medical officer for Scotland earlier this year, also told how he feared for the NHS in England, where ministers have made "very different" decisions to Scotland.
Sir Harry's comments come less than two months before voters in Scotland decide the country's future in a referendum.
He told BBC Radio Scotland's Crossfire programme: "If people felt that they were able to engage more with local government, with central government and make choices more easily for themselves then that would improve their health."
More powers for Holyrood are "guaranteed" if voters reject independence and return Labour to power at Westminster, shadow Scottish secretary Margaret Curran said.

Its proposals for more powers to be transferred north - including giving Holyrood more power over income tax and responsibility for housing benefit - will be included in the party's election manifesto.
Ms Curran said: "More powers for the Scottish Parliament are guaranteed next year. This decision today means that Labour's commitment to pass powers over tax, jobs and welfare to the Parliament will be included in our manifesto for the 2015 election and a new Scotland Act will be in Labour's first Queen's Speech."
