ANNOUNCEMENT SCOTTISH DRUGS FORUM TRAINING EVENTS  

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in the light of advice from the Government and others, SDF has cancelled all face-to-face training. This decision will be reviewed in due course.

Scottish Drugs Forum’s e-learning platform will continue as normal and e-learning courses are available.

SDF are still able to discuss ideas around commissioning bespoke training beyond the core training.  If you would like to discuss this contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
