Support for councils needed to deliver Frank's law

Commenting as the Scottish parliament health and sport committee approved plans for free personal care for under 65s from April 2019, Scottish Liberal Democrat health spokesperson Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:

"It is absolutely essential that action is now taken to ensure people under the age of 65 with a degenerative illnesses have access to the personal care and support they need. This has been a hugely unfair burden on families for too long.

"However, the Scottish Government have a long history of making big promises and then farming the implementation - and the associated costs - out to local authorities. For this policy to achieve its admirable goals local authorities must receive the support and resources they need to deliver Frank's law as intended."
