The Implementation Plan for Rare Diseases in Scotland 2014

Today the Scottish Government has published it’s Implementation Plan for Rare Diseases in Scotland 2014 which explains how the Scottish Government will fulfil the responsibilities it signed up to as part of the The UK Rare Diseases Strategy.

Since devolution healthcare has been managed very differently in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and England.  It is now extremely unusual for there to be a UK wide health strategy.  However, when considering rare conditions, such as bleeding disorders, it makes sense to have a common approach right across the UK. Today’s plan explains how the Scottish Government will live up to the challenge of improving diagnosis, treatment and care for people with rare diseases and their families.
