Who we are
The Digital Health & Care Division is part of the Scottish Government and sits under the Director General Health & Social Care.
Key responsibilities are:
- Leading on policy and strategy, informed by the latest innovations, research, evaluation, and engagement.
- Transforming services through the implementation and spread of digital services and technology.
- Providing expertise on information governance, assurance and cyber security.
We work collaboratively with a range of public, private, third and independent sector partners to deliver digital solutions to ensure that the health and care needs of the people of Scotland are met, and that they benefit fully from our innovation and digital and data developments.
Digital Health and Care Division is currently reviewing our governance. The website will be updated shortly once the review is completed.
