Social media – using Twitter

The Partnership has a blue tick verified Twitter account @EdinburghHSCP and this is the best place for posting and sharing stories about the great work taking place in teams across the Partnership. If you have a story, video or picture you’d like to share, please send it to the Partnership’s communications team by emailing

We operate a blue tick verified Twitter account so that our followers know that the information we post is authentic and can be trusted. For this reason, we ask that colleagues do not set up satellite accounts for their individual teams within the Partnership.
