SNP Autumn conference 2016
Great weekend at the Scottish National Party (SNP) conference. Congratulations to our new Depute Leader, Angus Robertson MP.
Nicola Sturgeon made a big announcement and the draft independence referendum bill will be published next week.
In between fringe events and meetings, I managed to get around some of the stalls at #SNP16. Thanks to Sue Ryder, Terrence Higgins Trust Scotland, Addaction, Guide Dogs Scotland, Breast Cancer Care, Cancer Research UK, and Diabetes UK for taking the time to speak to me about their organisations and the excellent work they do.
Thanks also to Marie Curie and Chest, Heart and Stroke for hosting a fringe event at #SNP16 and for inviting me along to speak. It was a great discussion about reforming our health and social care locally and the important role of third sector partners in helping to make it so successful.
