Health and Social Care Learning in Scotland 

Explore ideas, insights and examples of positive emerging practice from across health and social care in Scotland.

Health and social care services across Scotland have been rapidly adapting in order to mitigate the challenges presented by COVID-19. Shaped by new partnerships and collaborations, a different approach to risk and a need to be responsive, emerging practice has led, in many cases, to improved outcomes for people in Scotland. As well as seeking to share and spread this good practice, we’re also looking at where services have mitigated any unintended negative consequences from the recent rapid changes, and reducing health inequalities.
