Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 20 October 2016

To ask the Scottish Government whether it has carried out a review of the provision and resourcing of services for women with borderline personality disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder as recommended in the final report of the Commission on Women Offenders.

Answered by: Maureen Watt 8 November 2016

The National Prisoner Healthcare Network’s workstreams on female offenders, mental health and psychological therapies will provide a range of opportunities for local services to consider the provision of services for women with borderline personality disorders and PTSD. In light of this, the Scottish Government does not intend to implement a separate review of the matter.
