Campaigning in Scotland

We will continue to campaign in Scotland to ensure that our community's voice is heard.

A debate was held in The Scottish Parliament in December 2017, which was tabled by Alexander Stewart MSP. It followed his motion which was signed by more than 50 MSPs.

In April 2018, a roundtable meeting was held which focused on two key issues – early diagnosis and patient experience. This was chaired by Miles Briggs MSP and brought together key stakeholders including MSPs, clinicians, carers, patients and researchers.

The debate and subsequent meeting have led to the formation of the Scotland Steering Committee. This group will meet at various points to discuss how improvements can be made in Scotland. The role of the Scotland Steering Committee is to manage the strategy of improving brain tumour patient experience and reducing diagnosis times in Scotland.
