How to search
You can search a social service worker's record using first name or surname or town of employment or their Scottish Social Service Council registration number.
You do not need to enter information in every section on the search form. Results will only be returned where the search terms used match what we hold on record. If you can't find who you are looking for, try searching just by registration number or just by first and last name.
The search facility does allow "wild card" searching for the first name eg Rob will give Robert.
