S5W-19153: Colin Beattie (Midlothian North and Musselburgh)

Scottish National Party

Date lodged: 2 October 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to a recent Sue Ryder report that suggests that providing proactive and planned care to a person with MND could lead to savings of between 30-50% annually.

Answered by: Joe FitzPatrick 26 October 2018

During 2018 we have engaged extensively with the neurological community to develop Scotland’s first ever National Action Plan on Neurological Conditions, which will be published in draft form for consultation shortly. The plan sets out our vision that everyone with a neurological condition will be able to access the care and support they need to live well, on their own terms. We will consider the Sue Ryder report, as part of that consultation process.
