Scottish Parliament election 2021

The landscape in which the polls will take place for the next mandate is like no other due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As paediatricians we call on the incoming Scottish Government to make child health and wellbeing a national priority.

Our manifesto for child health in Scotland

We call on the incoming Scottish Government to make child health a national priority in the next mandate and to take a range of actions across four main themes: mental health, healthy weight, child health inequalities and poverty, and universal services.
