Question S3W-35639

To ask the Scottish Executive what steps it is taking to examine the state of NHS websites and whether it has had access to the UK Department of Health’s digital communications review, circulated internally in June 2010, and, if so, what action it will take to ensure that NHSScotland websites do not contain any deficiencies identified in the review.

We have not had access to the Department of Health’s digital communications review and are therefore unable to comment on the contents.

NHS National Services Scotland (NSS) is currently reviewing the provision of web-based information within NHSScotland, looking specifically at those sites that are hosted within the Scottish Health On the Web (SHOW) website hosting service.

NHS boards are responsible for updating their own websites and ensuring that they are fit for purpose.
