Asbestos Action will be holding an Asbestos Sufferers Information Day at the Hilton Hotel, Dundee, on Friday 22 February 2013 at 10.00 am.

The Head of Digby Brown's Industrial Disease Department, Ruth Bertram, will be a guest speaker. Ruth will give a presentation covering the arrangements for handling Scottish pleural plaques claims and the Government's plans for a scheme to allow claims for mesothelioma claims to proceed in cases where no employers' liability insurance policies can be traced, a scheme which Ruth discussed on the Digby Brown website last year.

Digby Brown have close links with Asbestos Action, a Scottish charity who assist sufferers of asbestos related diseases. They are a voluntary, not-for-profit organisation that provide practical support and advice to those who have an asbestos related disease and ensure there is a local service in the East of Scotland to respond to any queries that a person diagnosed with an asbestos condition may have.

The charity was formed by a group of people from the East of Scotland who either have an asbestos related illness or have cared for someone with an asbestos linked condition.
