Department Of Population Health

We publish daily updates on people vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine on our COVID-19 daily dashboard. Supporting Scotland’s response to COVID-19 is at the forefront of our work. We provide data to inform decision making around effective measures, and guidance and resources to contribute towards managing the virus. The ‘Delivery plan for tackling the COVID-19 backlog of elective care’will also give patients greater control over their own health and offer greater choice of where to get care if they are waiting too long for treatment. The NHS and government have set out a blueprint to address backlogs built up during the COVID pandemic and tackle long waits for care with a massive expansion in capacity for tests, checks and treatments.
