healthandcare.scot is reporting that the Scottish government is searching for a facilitator for the Disability Equality Strategy, just weeks after the Disabled Children and Young People (Transitions to Adulthood)(Scotland) Bill was re-introduced in parliament.
A new Bill has been proposed by Johann Lamont MSP that is designed to improve outcomes for children and young people with a disability in the transition to adulthood. It aims to ensure every disabled child with an impairment or long-term health condition has a right to a Transition Plan.
