Health and social care - data strategy: consultation - easy read

We are gathering views on how data should be used and managed, across health and social care. These views will help shape the development of Scotland’s first data strategy for health and social care.

Why are having a consultation?

Data is facts, figures and information.

The Scottish Government wants the people who get health and social care services to be at the centre of the decisions about health and social care data.

We want to know what you think about how data should be gathered, stored and used.

These views will help us develop Scotland's first Data Strategy for health and social care.

It will be published in 2022.

Data can be used to help the people of Scotland.

This includes:

  • the delivery of better services
  • finding new ideas and new ways of doing things
  • supporting research – looking at information to develop new treatments, machines, equipment and information
