Health and Social Care

About us

The Scottish Government, NHS and local authorities are committed to supporting people to be able to look after and improve their own health and wellbeing and live in good health for longer. We are ensuring the system of health and social care benefits from better joined-up, anticipatory and preventative care and a greater emphasis on community-based care.

Furthermore, health and care is increasingly being delivered via digital means. Digital technologies help to ensure care is delivered in a way that works best for people, and furthers our ambitions to support personal and community-led decision making.
