Challenging substance use through a whole system approach

September 17, 2019

Faced with high levels of substance use in West Dunbartonshire a ten-year strategy has been put in place to help reverse a complex culture that leads to health inequalities in local communities.

The area has become Scotland's first early adopter of the whole system approach, which brings partners together for the good of the community.

Chief Officer at the West Dunbartonshire Health and Social Care Partnership, Beth Culshaw, discussed her ambition for the project with Campbell Hart.
