To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to the third supplementary to question S5F-01510 by Nicola Sturgeon on 14 September 2017 (Official Report, c.15), what its position is on working with people with neurological conditions to help develop a national strategy to assist the NHS, local authorities and health and social care partnerships in delivering suitable services.
Answered by: Aileen Campbell 18 October 2017
Scottish Government considers that working with people with neurological conditions is essential, to ensure that the National Action Plan reflects people's priorities, needs and aspirations.
To this end, we are funding the Health and Social Care Alliance, to lead a Neurological Programme to support those with lived experience of neurological conditions in shaping priorities for the National Action Plan. We are also working closely with the Neurological Alliance of Scotland.
