First Minister Nicola Sturgeon met with CAA staff to discuss the new training book:
Clydeside Action on Asbestos has worked tirelessly to raise awareness of this illness and its consequences for individuals, and I am delighted that this new educational resource for GPs and their practice staff is now available.
This is an important issue for the people of Scotland, and I entirely agree that we have to make sure that there is information and support available for not only those who are living with an asbestos related disease, but also for our GP’s.There are many issues for GP’s to consider in relation to a potential diagnosis of an asbestos related disease, and I believe there is a real demand for there to be specialist information available for GP’s to access.
I am grateful to CAA for producing the GP module which will be beneficial to patients and GP’s alike.
