Long term conditions and poverty: a platform for the voices of lived experience

Information on the ‘Access to Good Quality Healthcare in Scotland’ event, a participatory event for those with experience of living with a long term condition on a low income.


The Poverty Alliance in partnership with the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) are hosting a joint event to explore the issues of people with lived experience of poverty and long term conditions in accessing good quality health care in Scotland. This will feed into the work of Poverty Alliance’s Get Heard Scotland (GHS) programme which helps people affected by poverty to influence policy and decision-making.

  • Date: Wednesday 6th November 2019
