Want to shape the delivery of digital programmes?

Published in News on 23 Jun 2021

The ALLIANCE Digital Health and Care team is leading engagement activity that will shape and inform the delivery of digital programmes and approaches across health, care and housing in Scotland.

A Digital Citizen Panel is being created to support the work of the Digital Citizen Delivery Board, which aims to empower citizens to better manage their health and wellbeing, support independent living, and gain access to services through digital technologies.

The Panel will:

  • Hear the voices of people and organisations across Scotland on their needs, rights and preferences on using digital to better manage their housing, health and social care
  • Design and deliver an inclusive and diverse programme of engagement and communication activity which ensures people are supported to participate and their voices are heard
  • Capture the insight, learning and feedback on current experiences from people, organisations and stakeholders, contributing support to the Board’s aim of ‘empowering citizens’

The Digital Citizen Panel is committed to ensuring that the voices, expertise and rights of people with lived experience drive policy and practice, and sit at the heart of design, delivery and improvement of support and services – shifting the power dynamic between government and Scottish citizens.
