Drugs Uncut podcast discusses the Drug Deaths Taskforce with Chair Prof Catriona Matheson

The second episode of SDF’s new ‘Drugs Uncut’ podcast has been released and is available to download for free

The podcast aims to provide an informal yet informed space for conversation around drug-related issues in Scotland.

Hosted by SDF colleagues Andy Coffey, Kirsten Horsburgh, and Austin Smith, the podcast provides an opportunity for listener’s to hear conversations and debate on a number of issues pertinent to the field.

In our second episode, we focussed on some of the responses to the increase in drug-related deaths in Scotland – particularly looking at the Scottish Government’s Drug Deaths Taskforce and what recommendations were made to them at their first meeting in regards to the Scottish National Naloxone Programme.

We were grateful to also have the opportunity to sit down with Chair of the Taskforce, Professor Catriona Matheson, to find out how the first two meetings have gone and what the hopes are for the future.
