VHS hosted a joint zoom event with NES Digital Service, NHS Education for Scotland on the 23rd of June to discuss health literacy and health inequalities.
The event was an opportunity for voluntary health organisations to engage with NDS and to explore issues and approaches regarding digital health inequalities which is particularly relevant in light of COVID-19 driving more health and care services online. Technology has the potential to reduce health inequalities by enabling people to access digital health information and tools to help them to better manage their health and care. However, left unchecked, digital technologies could also widen health inequalities.
