Minister for Public Health visits Western Isles to hear about progress

Published on 26 Nov 2012

Minister for Public Health Michael Matheson is set to visit the Western Isles next week (November 26) to hear about the progress made by the NHS Western Isles Learning Disabilities Collaborative Project.

The Learning Disabilities Collaborative was established in 2010 to help influence improvements in the way general health services are provided to and accessed by people with learning disabilities.

A key focus of the project has been joint work with the 'Stand up for Yourself' Self Advocacy Group for adults with learning disabilities.

Notes for Editors:

Key achievements and progress will be presented to the Minister at a presentation on Monday November 26 between 9.30am and 10am, in the Clinical Skills Area of Western Isles Hospital, which members of the press are welcome to attend. Please inform Maggie Fraser by 5pm on Friday if you wish to attend.

There will also be an opportunity for a photocall at 10.30am in the Clinical Skills Area, Western Isles Hospital.
