NHS Scotland Test and Protect service has been introduced to control the spread of coronavirus as lockdown measures are eased, and a letter containing a leaflet and step by step guide has been sent to every household in Scotland, providing information on the Test and Protect service and process from NHS Scotland.

The Test and Protect information 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 on the Scottish Government website (this link will take you away from our website).

Partnering with the Scottish Government, Minority Ethnic Carers of People (MECOPP) have produced a voiced over version of the Test & Protect Process Video in Cantonese, also available on YouTube (this link will take you away from our website).
