Media enquiries

NHS Health Scotland is part of the NHS in Scotland but we do not have a role in responding to enquiries about NHSScotland policy or the provision of local services. Our primary role is to work with others to produce, share and implement knowledge of what works to improve the health of the people of Scotland in an equitable way.

If you have a media enquiry relating to our work, please contact the Communications and Engagement team on 07500 854 574 (Monday-Friday 9am to 5pm). 

You can also email your enquiry to us.
