Scottish Ministers established a special temporary scheme that provided death in service benefits for relevant persons working for, or providing services on behalf of, an NHS Scotland Health Board, Special Health Board, NHS National Services Scotland (Common Services Agency) and Healthcare Improvement Scotland, called the NHS Scotland and Social Care Coronavirus Life Assurance Scheme 2020.

This temporary scheme will close on 30 June 2022. Claimants have until 30 June 2023 to submit claims for deaths that occurred while the scheme was open (up to and including 30 June 2022). Please find the application form, rules and policy note below:
