To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to improve access to specialist teenage and young adult (TYA) clinical psychology services, as set out in the cancer strategy for children and young people.


The Scottish Government is committed to improving support services for children and young people with cancer. Last year we provided recurring funding for the existing dedicated psychologists for children and young people with cancer.

A review of further psychological support services in Scotland is currently being carried out by the Managed Service Network for Children and Young People with Cancer and the Scottish Government remains engaged with this.
