The Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare (SCTT) is involved in exploring the potential for providing healthcare for people in Scotland’s custodial system.
SCTT provides support to the territorial health boards and the Scottish Prison Service to develop telehealth models that improve prisoners’ access to a range of specialist health services.
Our current projects include:
SCTT supported the development and delivery of Scotland’s first ever VC-enabled epilepsy clinic within a Scottish prison in 2014. The service is now part of routine service delivery, with regular clinics running from Ninewells Hospital to HMP Perth. Benefits include:
Cognitive Behaviourial Therapy
SCTT has facilitated the delivery of NHS 24’s Living Life service via telephone links at HMP Kilmarnock, HMP Shotts and HMP Perth. Living Life provides telephone-based cognitive behavioural therapy for people suffering from low mood, mild to moderate depression and/or anxiety.
