Virtual Visiting scoping exercise
Virtual Visiting is starting to be used by some NHS boards but there is not yet guidance on how to do it most effectively.
The Scottish Government has asked us to undertake a scoping exercise to inform further the introduction or enhancement of Virtual Visiting across all wards and in-patient facilities across NHS Scotland.
We are contacting the lead nurses in each NHS board in order to find out about your experiences. What is working well? What is the learning for others?
The information you provide will help to assess the cost of introducing Virtual Visiting equably across Scotland so everyone in an in-patient facility can be near their loved ones, even if it is virtually.
