Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 29 January 2019

To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on allowing the use of electronic remote signatures as part of the two-doctor signature process in the abortion process, and how such an approach could impact on accessibility to services, particularly in rural and remotes areas.

Answered by: Joe FitzPatrick 25 February 2019

Electronic signatures can be used where appropriate, as long as NHS Boards comply with the requirements of the Abortion (Scotland) Regulations 1991.
