Now that the Scottish Parliament is in recess the MSPs have returned to their constituencies and regions to deal with local issues and prepared for the referendum. That means that now is a great chance to meet your local MSPs without having to travel to the Scottish Parliament.
Today I was in Motherwell seeing Richard Lyle MSP who is a great friend of Haemophilia Scotland as well as been a member of the Scottish Parliament’s Health and Sport Committee.
We discussed how to keep his colleagues interested and informed in the run up to the publication of the Penrose Report in the Autumn. I also updated him on our campaign for an open market for longer acting clotting factor products. As usual Richard was extremely helpful and full of useful advice and ideas.
