What is NDS?
Our mission is to improve the quality and delivery of health and social care across Scotland by building a National Digital Platform for clinical data.
Until now NHS Scotland technology has been in bits, over decades, by a number of different public sector organisations and private companies.
Policymakers, expert advisors and NHS staff themselves have all told us that we need a new approach to deliver the full potential of technology to improve quality of care.
We need one system, connected, safe and accessible.
Who we are
NES Digital Service is building the foundation for all clinical data in Scotland enabling:
- Rapid improvement in both the quality and delivery of health and social care across Scotland, helping the lives of all its citizens
- The people of Scotland to have appropriate access to accurate, up to date clinical information and make it easier for them to arrange appointments and update their records
- Medical Research based on larger, more detailed and up to date data than ever before
Geoff has been director of Health and Social Care Integration at the Scottish Government since 2014 and before that was Head of Mental Health.
