To ask the Scottish Government which cross-border networks it participates in that aim to offer improved information sharing and develop initiatives that support veterans.
Answered by: Shona Robison 10 May 2018
We welcome the work carried out by the Scottish Veterans Commissioner and the publication of his report Veterans Health and Wellbeing: A Distinctive Scottish Approach. We will consider the findings and recommendations carefully, including how we respond to the challenges raised.
In relation to cross-border networks, Scottish Government officials actively participate in the Ministry of Defence and Department of Health Partnership Board and their various sub-groups.
