SUMIT Project Launched by Dundee University

Dundee University, sponsored by NHS Tayside alongside Dundee, Angus and Perth & Kinross Alcohol and Drug Partnerships, has launched the Substance Misuse Information Tayside project to more thoroughly monitor drink and drug misuse in the Tayside. The leader of the project, Dr Brian Kidd, Clinical Senior Lecturer on Addiction Psychiatry at Dundee University has said that the project aims to use information that they gather and use it to effectively integrate the currently available services. Dr Kidd: “.. what we will be doing with this project is finding the best way to join all of that up in a sensible way.” “This is a large problem not just in Tayside but across Scotland and there are ambitious and expansive national strategies now in place to try and tackle it.. For that to succeed we need to develop much better information management at a local level.
