NHS Scotland has published a briefing which examines the implications of universal income on health. It suggests a systematic review of the models used in previous universal income experiments and impacts is needed, as is further modelling of different programme designs. It stresses that assessments of different models should consider which populations have the greatest risk of being adversely affected, as part of a larger assessment of economic, social, and health impacts.
