For Holyrood Connect’s 5th annual Digital Health and Care Awards, Children’s Health Scotland’s SMS:CONNECT programme has been shortlisted for the Innovative Mental Health Services Award!
Today (10 December 2021) is the 73rd Human Rights Day and inequalities is the theme for this year. Inequalities have fuelled the pandemic and continue to do so.
Children and young people aged 12 -15 years old will be offered a dose of the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination from Monday 20 September after Scottish Ministers accepted advice from the four UK Chief Medical Officers (CMOs).
If you are aged 16 or 17 and care for someone due to old age, physical or mental illness, disability or for an addiction you may be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine now. Visit https://nhsinform.scot/carersregister or call 0800 030 8013.
