Meeting Public Health Minister
At the beginning of November 2017 the new affa sair Administration Team met with the Public Health Minister Aileen Campbell MSP and the National Pain Co-ordinator Dr Paul Cameron, at Knockomie Hotel in Forres for a meeting first suggested by Richard Lochhead MSP earlier in the year.
In the meeting Aileen and Paul heard from the team about the work of affa sair and the need for procedures to be carried out at Dr Gray's Hospital in Elgin instead of forcing chronics to a 150 mile return journey to and from Aberdeen.
Both Aileen and Paul took away lists of questions which they undertook to have replies for by our next monthly meeting at the end of the month.
Paul also agreed to act as a Liaison between affa sair and the Public Health Minister rather than us dealing with the Strategic Planning and Critical Priorities Section. We felt it a successful and welcome meeting which will only enhance our reputation at the Scottish Government.
