While the minister was speaking, I was reminded of conversations that I had during my visit to Robin house. One of the issues that has stayed with me is the financial impact that a life-shortening condition has on a family, particularly if they are on a low income. Health inequality is a big issue in Scotland. Can the Government do more work with CHAS to find out how we can maximise income for families in that situation, to make sure that they have access to all the support and advice that they need?
