SPN Newsletter – Issue 24 – October 2022

Posted by Anne-Sophie Hoffmoen - 28/10/2022

The end of the month also means that the Scottish Perinatal Network Newsletter – Issue 24 is available!

For some of you the weekend might hold costume parties, accompanying your children as they go trick or treating or guising, or entirely avoiding both of those things. For others it might involve long shifts. To those who have gussied up your wards or offices for “spooky season” (aka Halloween, All Hallows Eve, Samhain, etc) and can share this via Twitter, feel free to tag us @ScotPerinatal, it’ll make us happy to see!

Within you will find news and updates, as well as some calls for volunteers and requests to cascade information.
