Professional Orchestras in Scotland
Professional Scottish Orchestras can offer financial help towards treatment costs for their members. Each orchestra has a different scheme, and it is best to contact your orchestra manager or MU representative to obtain more information:

  • RSNO - The Royal Scottish National Orchestra has a "Sick Fund", which musicians can access to get reimbursed for their treatment costs. Speak to Ewen McKay, Orchestra Manager. Your MU representatives Peter Hunt and Ursula Heidecker will also be able to advise you.
  • BBC SSO - The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra has a "Training Budget" available for each orchestra member. Musicians can use these funds towards treatment costs. Speak to the Orchestra Manager or Alex Gascoigne, MU representative.
  • Scottish Opera - Financial help is available towards treatment costs on a "needs basis" for orchestra players with health-related problems. Speak to Jay Allen (0141 248 4567), Orchestra and Concerts Director.
