FPH in Scotland publish briefing ahead of Scottish Parliamentary Election

The Committee of the Faculty of Public Health in Scotland has published a briefing for prospective MSPs ahead of the Scottish Parliamentary Election which will be held on 6 May 2021.

This briefing has been sent to political party leaders in Scotland, with a request to cascade to their prospective MSPs.

The briefing highlights that whilst Scotland has shown public health leadership on issues such as a smoking ban in public places, Minimum Unit Pricing for alcohol and the Child Poverty Act, there is still much work to do to tackle health inequalities in Scotland and mitigate the impacts of COVID-19.
