Drinks Calculator

To keep health risks from alcohol to a low level it is safest for both men and women not to drink more than 14 units a week on a regular basis.  Spread your drinking over three days or more, if you regularly drink as much as 14 units per week.  If you wish to cut down the amount you drink, a good way to help achieve this is to have several drink-free days each week.

Bereavement films for professionals

The NES Supporting Scottish Grief and Bereavement Care workstream aims to support the delivery of safe, effective and person-centred care which is provided, before, at and after death, to those who are at the end of life and to the bereaved, within a culture of support for staff health, wellbeing and resilience

Discussing dying is something most of us shy away from. The potential discomfort is not just in the patient’s mind - it’s also likely to be in the minds of the professionals who are looking after them. This video aims to help healthcare professionals discuss dying openly and honestly with their patients.
