Specialist Children's Services (SCS)

KIDS Scotland

Paediatric Occupational Therapy Services, in partnership with Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and Screenmedia, an award winning Digital Design Agency, have developed this user friendly, innovative digital eHealth tool.

KIDS stands for Kids Independently Developing Skills.  We hope this platform will enable children, young people, parents and professionals to have a single point of immediate access to advice, strategies, and self-help support with information provided by all the different health care disciplines working within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Specialist Children's Services.  This information can be accessed via your  desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

KIDS Scotland Project Team

The Project Team consists of Gwen Carr, Occupational Therapist (Project Lead), Tracy Glen and Kimberley Cunningham, Technical Instructors (Project Officers).

Whilst the team are responsible for the inputting of information and keeping the site up to date, the content of the site has been provided by a wealth of experienced Health Professionals from across Specialist Children's Services.

It has been a long held aspiration for Occupational Therapy to lead in this eHealth Project. Working with Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity and Screenmedia has brought us much closer to making this service development a reality. The enthusiasm and support we have received from the other paediatric services and eHealth Clinical Leads has been much appreciated and we look forward to continued joint working.
