Scottish Parliamentary Elections – Care Hustings – 21 Apr

Scottish Care is pleased to host a virtual hustings forum on Wednesday 21st April from 13:00 – 14:00 ahead of Scottish Parliamentary Elections on May 6th.

At the event, we will be joined by political party health representatives of the major parties who have existing parliamentary seats. Confirmed attendees include:

  • Donald Cameron – Conservative
  • Jackie Baillie – Labour
  • Alison Johnstone – Green
  • Fulton McGregor -SNP
  • Alex Cole-Hamilton – Liberal Democrats

Each party representative will be invited to briefly share their perspectives on social care, reflecting on the past year and priorities for the next Parliament.  We will then hold an open Q and A session. This is your opportunity to quiz prospective parliamentarians on matters that concern you most.

Social Care has never been such a prominent issue in an election. Scottish Care has published our own Care Manifesto which centres on the call in the Independent Review of Adult Social Care for a Social Care Covenant – an agreement of and for social care that places the dignity of individuals at the heart of decision-making and at the forefront of a more inclusive social care future.

The session will be an open, online event and requires registration. It will be moderated by Scottish Care CEO, Dr Donald Macaskill. Please sign up at the following link:  https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZIldu-vqTkiGd02SpW-u30jCV9HoQmSpEc6
