Steering Group


Action being taken

The Scottish Government established a National Steering Group to oversee the roll out of an Action plan that led to the new arrangements being implemented from April 2006. The matters that the Group were to over see included the establishment of standards for both the healthcare and appliance supply services for stoma patients. The Group was chaired by a senior NHS Board Executive (Mr Terry Findlay of NHS Greater Glasgow) and comprised representatives of patients and all other key stakeholders, ie appliance suppliers, stoma nurses, pharmacy representatives and relevant NHS administrators.

The work of this group has ended and a National Review Group has been established to oversee the ongoing implementation of the plan.
