Timeline :: Sutherland Review launched

Silhouette for no photo

Lord Sutherland's Independent Review of Free Personal and Nursing Care in Scotland is published by the Scottish government.  This came on the back of a 10-year Royal Commission that looked at what should be done and argued that free personal & nursing care should be an entitlement for everyone assessed as needing this level of care and support. This approach was very different to that adopted in England and Wales.
