BRIAN Whittle MSP has lent his support to help improve the lives of locals living with terminal illness.

Meeting with representatives from Marie Curie, the terminal illness charity recently, Brian was interested to hear about efforts to nsure that everyone should get the care and support they need at the end of life.

Marie Curie supported over 8,600 people in Scotland last year through their hospices, nursing care and support services.

Mr Whittle said: “Living with a terminal illness is a huge burden for anyone to bear. That’s why I’m delighted to support Marie Curie and the work they do to lighten that burden and help Scots dealing with a terminal illness.”
