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 we developing a Data Strategy?

There are still many areas where we do not have enough data to make health and social care services better.

We want to improve:

  • how data is used
  • how people can get their data

The Data Strategy will support organisations to work together to stop people having to give the same information to many different people and services.

It will make sure there are ways to include people who do not or cannot use online services.

What work have we done so far

In 2019 we looked at what people in Scotland thought about using and sharing health and social care data.

This information is online here:

In November 2021 we asked people what they needed from a Data Strategy.

The answers have helped us decide what to ask in this consultation.
