Health and social care: data strategy - executive summary easy read

Easy read version of the data strategy for health and social care executive summary.

The standards for our work – the level of quality people should expect from us

We will be open and honest and make sure the public trust and support our work.

We will use data to:

  • help us understand inequalities – people not being treated fairly or being given the same choices and chances
  • know where to best give support services

We will work with NHS Education for Scotland, the Local Government Digital Office, the Scottish Social Services Council and others to do more to develop digital and data skills and use them where they can make the most difference.

Our staff must know how to use data well.

Data must be part of work to make things fairer for people in Scotland, and support how our economy grows.

Our economy is how the country produces and uses goods, services and money.
