The first meeting of the Scotland SCPF was held and it was well attended with Vince Bowles and Tony Priest representing NASHiCS.
As previously reported last year it was agreed that there would be separate forums based in England, Scotland and Wales which would more accurately reflect the issues appertaining to that country.
The main forum would then meet once each year.
Details of future minutes & any key messages for each of the forums would be published on the website.
