COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information and Guidance for Customers
On this page you find information and updates on how we are responding to and dealing with the implications of the Covid19 pandemic. You can view our answers to the typical type of questions we receive or view more detailed information on our housing and care services.
We use two main sources for information, guidance and instruction - during this outbreak we recommend our customers use NHS Inform and Health Protection Scotland for accurate and up to date information.
We want to reassure you that we aim to deliver the best possible services in the current COVID-19 outbreak. In these highly unusual times, our foremost concerns are the health and safety of our customers, families, and our staff. That’s why the government has asked us all to take sensible steps to slow its spread and we are following that advice.
