Scottish Parliament: National Drugs Mission (24 Nov 2022)

Collette Stevenson: ...treating you with contempt or your own thoughts telling you that you are worthless, stigma against people with problematic drug use can be crippling.

Sandesh Gulhane: I welcome the announcement, and I fully support the bullied, broken and burnt-out front-line staff of NHS Forth Valley, but I also urge patients to continue to attend when required, because the staff are still excellent.
