National Care Service: business and regulatory impact assessment

Business and regulatory impact assessment for the National Care Service (Scotland) Bill.

Digital & data impact test

The Bill provisions do not give rise to any immediate or direct impact on technology or technological advances. The Bill allows Scottish Ministers to set information standards which will require compliance by relevant bodies but allow these data and digital standards to be updated as required (including technology changes). We are committed to ensuring that people will be able to engage with the NCS, including through the integrated electronic social care and health record, through non-digital routes to ensure that it is fully inclusive to everyone regardless of digital literacy and skills and access to digital devices.
