Test & Protect National Mailing

From Gail at the NHS24 Engagement Team

We have been asked by our Scottish Government colleagues to send out the information below to all our partners and contacts. Please accept our apologies for any cross posting.

This week, the Test & Protect National Mailing is being delivered to every home across Scotland.

The NHS Scotland Test and Protect service has been introduced to control the spread of coronavirus as lockdown measures are eased. We are working with partners and stakeholders to get this vital message out to everyone across our communities.

This mailshot is a key communication tool for Test and Protect, and will provide every household with detailed information they need to understand the process and to undertake the steps which may be required if they need to isolate. This includes:

  • A letter from the First Minister
  • An infographic explaining the Test and Protect Process
  • The Test and Protect information leaflet

The Test & Protect Mailing has been translated into the following languages and accessible formats: Arabic, Audio MP3, BSL, Easy Read, Farsi, Gaelic, Large Print Format, Hindi, Hungarian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Slovakian, Traditional Chinese and Urdu. Digital versions of the leaflet in these languages and formats will be available online at www.gov.scot/test-and-protect

Our partners at Minority Ethnic Carers of People (MECOPP) have also produced a voiced over version of the Test & Protect Process Video in Cantonese, you can find these here: https://youtu.be/5Rm4P9snXw0

We are really grateful for your support in sharing this with partners, service-users and communities.
