Dundee Drugs Misuse Commission

Dundee Drugs Misuse Commission,

Dundee, like most cities, has problems with drug misuse which impact on many of our communities. This is a complex and serious issue and the Council, NHS Tayside and all our partners in the city are determined to take action to address it.

The Alcohol and Drug Partnership is setting up an independent commission with Figure 8 to investigate this, scrutinise local services and make recommendations on how, as a city and a community planning partnership, we can address this and turn our outcomes around.

This is being supported by local and national politicians and local service commissioners and managers, so we have the right climate to ask the hard questions and introduce meaningful change. Its independence will enable it to be rigorous and challenging whilst also acknowledging the challenges faced by local services.

If you would like to submit a call for Evidence please do so by Monday 21st May @ 5 pm. Full details can be found here – DDMC – Initial Call for Evidence
