2021 Election Hustings

On Friday the 16th of April the SCC hosted a virtual husting to hear the main parties’ views on cancer services ahead of the Scottish Parliament elections.

The discussion was led by our Chair, Claire Donaghy, who was joined by Alison Johnstone (Scottish Greens), David Torrance (SNP), Jackie Baillie (Scottish Labour), Miles Briggs (Scottish Conservatives) and Rebecca Bell (Scottish Liberal Democrats).

It was a positive event with the key themes being a need for action to support medical research, discussions relating to steps which must be taken to prevent more cancers, the importance of addressing workforce shortages, public awareness of signs and symptoms, as well as the vital role of health and well-being services.
