Why use this site?

‘To improve the care and wellbeing of people in Scotland by making best use of digital technologies in the design and delivery of services.’

We hope this website will offer support and help to allow you to work as a digitally enabled clinician on a day-to-day basis but also to consider what it takes to become a digital champion in your area.
