Question ref. S6W-08373
Asked by: Beatrice Wishart, Shetland Islands, Scottish Liberal Democrats
Date lodged: 5 May 2022
To ask the Scottish Government what advice it has provided to NHS boards about the use of GP DACS (General Practice Digital Asynchronous Consultation Systems).
Current status: Answered by Humza Yousaf on 17 May 2022
I can advise that all Health Boards in Scotland have been advised of the national approach being taken to the provision of a 'once for Scotland' GP DACS. Boards are aware that a national steering group is overseeing this development and has established a ‘pathfinder’ approach to better understand the level of demand, market maturity and benefits and impact before seeking to agree a national approach. Guidance will developed and issued as part of the pathfinder programme.
