- Delivering Quality, Alcohol, Drugs and Tobacco Healthcare Services to People in Police Custody in Scotland: Making it happen
In our response, we comment on the above draft documents. We welcome the draft documents and make suggestions to further strengthen them, including a recommendation for stronger emphasis on joined-up services and greater recognition of understanding the links between alcohol and offending.
