Following enquiries from carers about the rollout of the Covid vaccine, we have been informed that some NHS boards are now beginning to call forward a limited number of carers identified through GP records and relevant social security benefits (Carer’s Allowance, Young Carer Grant and Child Winter Heating Payment), as vaccine supply allows. If you are a carer, you do not have to do anything at this time if you have not received your appointment letter yet.
Further information will be available shortly about the forthcoming self-referral system for carers in Scotland.
