Question ref. S6W-08375
Asked by: Beatrice Wishart, Shetland Islands, Scottish Liberal Democrats
Date lodged: 5 May 2022

Question

To ask the Scottish Government how much each NHS board has spent on GP DACS (General Practice Digital Asynchronous Consultation Systems) in each of the last three financial years, and how much does each NHS board anticipate it will spend on these systems in the (a) current and (b) next financial year.

Current status: Answered by Humza Yousaf on 17 May 2022


Answer

The expenditure on local adoption of GP DACS is not currently monitored at a national level given the variation in different approaches and systems that are currently in use for online triage and asynchronous consultations. We expect to develop a clearer picture of this as we develop the approach to national GP DACS.
