There was a Q and A on Health in the big hall, at the Scottish Lib Dem Conference in Aberdeen and I spoke about Franks Law. I informed the panel about my motion, which was unanimously passed, to Angus Council ” This council calls on chief executive Richard Stiff to write to the First Minister to introduce a ‘Frank’s Law so that free personal care is extended to under-65s with dementia and the reply which was received that indicated that clear guidance” is in place to ensure no one in the last six months of a terminal illness should be charged for the care they receive at home. I was delighted with the support from the delegates at the conference and it was clear that the panel were appalled at the Scottish Government’s reply, and supported the need for action to get the law introduced.
