The SCG agreed that the move to Phase 6 would not trigger any material change in response at a local level at this time, given the level of planning and hard work that has been undertaken across all agencies.
Chief Executive of NHS Grampian, Richard Carey, who is chairing the Grampian SCG as the health lead to the response, said,
"I would like to reassure the people of Grampian that we are as prepared as we can be to deal with the implications of an impending pandemic. I would also like to pay tribute to the hard work of staff across all the agencies in recent weeks. I know that the planning and coordination we have undertaken will be valuable in the days and weeks ahead. We will continue to work very closely with the Scottish Government and Health Protection Scotland and to monitor the local and national situation on a daily basis."
