Coronavirus (COVID-19): Communications toolkit

It's essential that the people of Scotland receive the correct information, pathways of care and resources from NHS Scotland in relation to coronavirus (COVID-19).

NHS inform is being regularly updated with the latest clinically approved guidance in partnership with Health Protection Scotland.
