Scotland

We’ve changed some of the ways we work since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, but don’t worry –our friendly team are here in Scotland to make sure you have a voice. We manage external relations with stakeholders and policymakers including the Scottish Government and organisations with an interest in child health. Explore resources, news and events, and read our FAQs page.
Our team works with paediatricians across Scotland, administers our committees and provides the Scottish Government with a push for policy change.
