Digital Health and Care in Northern Ireland – Future Strategy

Closes 2 Nov 2021

Opened 12 Oct 2021


Health and Social Care Northern Ireland (HSCNI) are in the process of developing a new Digital Strategy that will shape what and how we deliver for the people of Northern Ireland up until 2030. Digital health and care has never been more important; the pandemic pushed us to reconsider the ways we delivered health and care services, as well as how we worked as an organisation to adhere to government restrictions and national lockdowns – there is an opportunity now to review how we move forward with delivering health and social care services, and how digital can play an increased role in that.

Why your views matter

  • We are keen to hear from people about their experience of using our digital tools and systems to manage their health and care needs in Northern Ireland (for example you may use a laptop/computer or personal mobile device to get information about services, manage prescriptions, attend virtual appointments, consultations).
  • This survey is open to anyone who accesses health and social care services in Northern Ireland.
  • The survey findings will help HSCNI to create digital solutions and tools that meet your needs and provide the best routes for you to manage your personal health and wellbeing. Our aim is to deliver services that are user friendly and fit-for-purpose – we need your input to help us shape that.
  • On conclusion of this survey, the findings will be reviewed and included in the DHCNI strategy – the results will be published on the Health and Social Care Board’s website.
  • Please feel free to share the link to this survey with anyone you feel would be interested.
