Dr Alison Elliot of the University of Edinburgh presented her thoughts at the launch of What Works Scotland on 26 June 2014.
She feels that What Works Scotland represents the coming of age of the Christie proposals for transforming public services in Scotland, when people are asking for hard data to decide on which approaches work and which don’t.
This work is going to require a lot of patience, but the signs are that there’s plenty resilience and creativity locked into our local communities and that, with the right kind of help from the statutory authorities, they could thrive and be healthy places for living.
