Contact Us

The Medical Appraisal Scotland team can be contacted by email at Medical.Appraisal@nes.scot.nhs.uk, for all training course / application queries.

For appraisal / revalidation queries, please contact your Local Administration team in the first instance (local health boards will have local protocols in place to support you).

If you have a technical query relating to SOAR, please send a helpdesk request to SOAR@nes.scot.nhs.uk.  If you have already submitted a helpdesk request, please wait until a member of the team responds, as continual helpdesk submissions will cause confusion and delay our ability to respond efficiently.
