(04-DEC-2015) NEWS: IMPORTANT - Website closing

Very sadly, after many years of lobbying and work, we are closing this website and Facebook page at Christmas. We will add news and events to both sites until then. 

PSALV (Psoriasis Scotland) is run by disabled unpaid volunteers and now, at age 67, my severe painful crippling PsA, surgery, fatigue, lack of mobility and eye issues are  forcing me to rest, and therefore the site has to close.

If you wish to campaign, please get in touch with me personally as there are Cross Party Groups etc. at Holyrood where you can lobby on Scots arthritis health issues - Janice.johnson5@btinternet.com

Thank you for all your help and support over the years, and I wish you all the best. 

(23-NOV-2015) EVENT: Free 'Digital Health' conference on 9 December in Glasgow

The ALLIANCE think it's really important for people to have their say on how digital (internet-based) technology is used to improve their access to - and interaction with - NHS services. To help with this, they are inviting patients and people with long term conditions to attend a free Digital Health and Care conference on Wednesday, 9 December in Glasgow city centre.

The ALLIANCE and the Scottish Government will run two afternoon workshops with people at the conference, which will discuss:

·         The digital services that GP practices might offer to people in the future; and

·         The ‘Personal Health Record’ (a record every Scottish person will be given to record their own health and wellbeing information)

By attending the conference, people will be able to give their views (directly to policy makers) on the digital healthcare options offered in Scotland.

To register for the free conference, people should email Zahid.Deen@alliance-scotland.org.uk (if possible) by 2 December.  Zahid will confirm your place and send them more details about the event.
