SVCN Launch Event - 19/11/2020

The Scottish Veterans Care Network holds its formal launch for stakeholders

The Scottish Veterans Care Network held its formal launch virtually on Thursday 19 November 2020.

Originally scheduled to take place in person in April 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak resulted in a readjustment of timescales for the launch, in order for members to respond appropriately with their respective organisations. The event was chaired by the new SVCN Oversight Board Chair, Pauline Howie OBS, Chief Executive of the Scottish Ambulance Service.

The SVCN held a collaborative virtual event to engage with stakeholders to further build and support the proposed governance and work programme, and to hear from key partners on the importance of the Network and what it means to them.

A wide range of professionals attended from various organisations such as the Ministry of Defence, Police Scotland, Scottish Government, NHS Boards, Health and Social Care Partnerships and several Third sector organisations, and we thank you all for your contributions to the event.
