Voluntary Health Scotland held our annual conference and AGM on Wednesday the 11th of November in Edinburgh.
The purpose of the conference was to make Scotland’s health inequalities a much greater priority for policy and interventions, to inform VHS’s future work and to promote a partnership approach. Our 126 delegates were drawn from the third sector, NHS and other parts of the public sector. The day included presentations from public and voluntary sector perspectives, a political discussion panel and round table discussions. Our Chair was Trisha McAuley, whose task was to ensure everyone present took responsibility for make the closing of the health inequalities gap ‘my business’ as well as ‘our business’.
VHS would like to thank NHS Health Scotland for their support as conference sponsor.
