To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on developing an equivalent body to the NHS Digital service that is in place in England.
Answered by: Shona Robison 1 May 2018
The Scottish Government, in partnership with COSLA, has now published Scotland’s Digital Health and Care Strategy which sets out a clear national direction for digital health and care delivery. We will now be working across the Scottish Government, NHS Scotland and Local Government to ensure that the capability required to successfully delivery on the strategy is in place, and will consider any requirement for organisational change as part of that process.
