On 15 November 2012, we met Alex Neil, the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Wellbeing in the Scottish Parliament. Alex Neil made it clear that his government wishes to make long-term arrangements for giving Thalidomiders in Scotland the financial support we need, with a resolution during the first week in December.
We take this as a positive message that the Health Grant is continuing in Scotland, with arrangements being discussed for an announcement in the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh. This is so Scottish Thalidomiders can have the chance to attend and meet Alex Neil personally on the day of the announcement. Please check back for further details about this on the website.
