The COVID 19 outbreak is having a significant impact upon how the Pensions Appeal Tribunal Scotland is able to carry out its normal activity. From and including 24th March 2020 and until further notice, the PATS offfice at Edinburgh Tribunals Centre, George House Edinburgh has been closed for business.
In the best interests and safety of the users of our tribunal, all appeal hearings have been cancelled until further notice. There will also be a significant delay in our ability to respond to your enquiries and send out our tribunal decisions within normal timescales. In the interim, we would appreciate it if all enquiries are made to our shared mailbox address of PAT_Info_Mailbox@scotcourtstribunals.gov.uk, as at present we are unable to answer or repond to telephone enquiries.
In light of the current uncertainty of the duration of the COVID 19 outbreak and the impact of any further ongoing measures, it is not possible to specify when normal service will be resumed.
We regret that such action needs to be taken, but thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented situation.
