Person-centred health and social care is at the heart of our strategic agenda in Scotland. We are developing a new, integrated Digital Health and Social Care Strategy that will build on achievements to date and set out future development and priorities.
Digital services offer real benefits to clinicians, health and care workers and patients. Our Case Studies section contains a range of examples that illustrate the positive impact of digital. In November 2016 we began to develop the new Strategy and since hen have been seeking general views, ideas and feedback.
This approach, which will continue through the Summer, will inform the draft document which will form the basis for more focused engagement with stakeholder groups in the Autumn. We currently envisage that the new Strategy will be published at the end of 2017.
Do you have any suggestions for events where we could participate and discuss the new Strategy? If you know of any groups or organisations holding events in September or October and feel that we could contribute, please email us here.
We have developed a draft vision for the new Strategy, in consultation with a wide range of stakeholders. Click on the link in each part of the Vision, to view existing case study examples that show how the Vision will be realised.
As a citizen of Scotland:
and ultimately improve outcomes for everyone.
We will add material to this page over the next few weeks, so please revisit regularly to be kept up to speed on developments. Whether you are a health care or social care professional, a sector manager or planner, a systems developer, or a patient or carer, we would welcome your views at the email address above. Please make sure you add your name, your role or interest, and your contact details as well as whether we can publish your comments (with or without your name and organisation) in any future consultation report.
Please also share this information with any relevant colleagues and encourage their participation – thank you!
