The Alliance Annual Meeting (and AGM)

On 1st May 2013 Bea (chair) and Liz (member) attended the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) Annual meeting and AGM in Perth. The focus of the day was 'Being Human: A Human Rights Based Approach to Health and Social Care' which may seem to be a far cry from PMR & GCA but is relevant to anyone who has any sort of health condition whether acute or chronic (long-term). The report [event briefing note] from the day has just been published and can be downloaded from HERE

The charity is a member of The Alliance


Our AGM was on Tuesday 16th April 2013 in the Queen's Hotel Dundee (160 Nethergate DD1 4DU) from 11.00am until 3.00pm. A light lunch was provided. What a great day we had in Dundee. Excellent speakers, enjoyable lunch and good company.

The first part of the video recording from our AGM in April is now available on YouTube covering Bhaskar Dasgupta's presentation HERE.


Professor Bhaskar Dasgupta, our patron and leading rheumatologist spoke about advances in research and developments in diagnosis.
