CHEX-Point Winter Issue - An eye on policy and practice

Minister articleMinister for Public Health, Michael Matheson  opens this issue with an overview of his hopes and ambitions for the Ministerial Task Force on Health Inequalities, and we welcome a short article from Gerry McLaughlin, Chief Executive of NHS Health Scotland where he shares an analysis of the stark health inequalities facing different communities in Scotland, and how we can tackle their root causes.


We hear from a volunteer who’s life has been transformed with the support of Glasgow Disability Alliance through whom she is ‘passing on the torch’ to help others affected by disability. And we hear personal accounts from two participants who took part in the CHEX and partners’ Learning Exchange between community-led health organisations and civil servants. They tell us what they learned and hope to take forward.
