Subject: RE: No-fault in Scotland?

Dear Steve and Hector

I think the answer is that nothing has happened. I assisted, as a member of its law advisory board, the Royal College Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow in responding to the final consultation on the two reports. But nothing more has been heard by that body, which along with the Edinburgh Colleges, would I think have been amongst the first to be informed if it had been decided to proceed further or decided not to proceed (as opposed to its being kicked into the long grass for the moment).

Dear Steve

You could try the contact (Sandra Falconer) named on this website -
No knowledge myself - this may have got lost in all the recent excitement in this jurisdiction.

Can anyone tell me what is the state of play with regard to introducing no-fault for clinical treatment in Scotland? I’ve got as far as the consultation report (last April) but haven’t seen much since then.
