Previous Action

On 8 October 2013, Nanette Milne MSP sponsored a round table meeting held at the Scottish Parliament, which involved clinicians who support patients on anti-coagulation therapy and politicians.

In 2014, a number of MSPs have also tabled PQs on this issue: Richard Simpson (S4W-06247); Richard Lyle (S4W-20108, S4W-20110, S4W-20111), Jackie Baillie (S4W-20102, S4W-20103, S4W-20104) and Margaret McCulloch (S4W-20176). On 1 April 2014, Nanette Milne's motion S4M-09430: "Self-management of Anticoagulation Therapy" was debated. In response, letters were published in national newspapers and the AntiCoagulation Self-Monitoring Alliance (ACSMA) sent letters to the Members of the Health and Sport Committee.

The petitioner wrote on numerous occasions to Michael Matheson MSP in his capacity as Minister of Public Health at the time. The petitioner also published a letter in the Herald on 16 May 2014.  

Following this publicity, the petitioner met with the CEO of Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board and the Clinical Manager of Anti Coagulation Services who are now developing a local model of care for paediatric warfarin patients moving to adult care services in the area.
