Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Remote Working and Communication

Welcome to NHS Education for Scotland's Digital Health and Care Learning Zone for Scotland's health and social care workforce.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone, including care staff, clinicians and people, are being asked to minimise contact with others. Implementing remote ways of working and communicating,  for example Near Me and Microsoft Teams, will help the challenge to minimise risks of exposure to COVID-19.
