The new Scottish Parliament addresses a hugely complex area of deep concern to more than 100,000 families across Scotland.

It is long overdue and sixty organisations give evidence to the parliament’s new scrutiny committees.

The net result is widely welcomed – protection for vulnerable adults and clarity for those looking after them and making important decisions on their behalf.

Not front page news but a real breakthrough for patients and the public in Scotland nonetheless.
