In 2008, all Scottish Terrier Breed clubs were contacted by the Kennel Club and asked to appoint a "Single Lead Health Coordinator who would serve the breed as a whole". Jenny Morris offered her time to devote to this new position and was elected as the "Single Lead Health Coordinator". On health related matters, Jenny is taking her directive from the Kennel Club. All information will then be passed onto the Breed Club Secretaries for discussion at the relevant Committees and forwarded to Club Members. Should any Breed Club Member feel the need to contact Jenny with information etc, she can be contacted at
