Dear NHS Health Scotland,

I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act (4/11/14).

I would like to know if any specific training is underway in Scotland to ensure all front-line staff in local NHS hospitals are prepared in how to deal with suspected cases of Ebola.

If so, I would like to know what specific training is being undergone.

Thank you very much for your assistance.

Yours faithfully,
