Health and care data sets

This page is part of the overall Data Sources part of the wiki. It covers Health and Social Care parts of the public sector.

NHS Scotland

In addition to the data below, NHS Scotland Information Services Division have some open data on the Statistics portal which is covered on the Scottish Government page.

Scottish Health Boards

There are currently fourteen Health Boards in Scotland. Looking beyond anything which may appear in the portal above, I found no open data published by any of the fourteen. Some performance data (e.g. Waiting Times) is presented nationally in the portal above.

  • NHS Ayrshire and Arran
  • NHS Borders
  • NHS Dumfries and Galloway
  • NHS Western Isles
  • NHS Fife
  • NHS Forth Valley
  • NHS Grampian
  • NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde
  • NHS Highland
  • NHS Lanarkshire
  • NHS Lothian
  • NHS Orkney
  • NHS Shetland
  • NHS Tayside

Two health Boards, Borders and Tayside, each have Publication Schemes which state "Class 9 - Open Data: We do not publish any information in this class." My understanding is that each have a legal duty to produce a publication scheme, but it is possible the others do so but are silent on Open Data, and therefore not picked up by my search.

The Urban Big Data Centre, already covered under Further Education, publish one aggregate dataset ) for Greater Glasgow and Clyde HSCP.

Scottish Joint Health and Social Care Partnerships

There are 30 Health and Social Care Partnerships (HSCPs) in Scotland.

Other than Angus HSCP no open data was found for any Partnership.

  • Aberdeenshire HSCP
  • Angus HSCP (Angus)
  • Argyll and Bute HSCP
  • City of Edinburgh HSCP

  • Falkirk HSCP
  • Fife HSCP

Explanatory notes to the above

  • Angus This partnership publishes a list of [nine maps]( on their HSCP's mapping platform, making them stand apart from the other 29! It states "Below is a list of maps which are available to view / download. The datasets for these maps will be available via the partnerships (sic) Open Data platform." There is no link to such an OD platform, and licensing of these maps is unclear. They do, however, make nice use of Open Streetmap to dislpay the map data.
  • WD Interestingly West Dunbartonshire have a [publication scheme]( which states:

> "While West Dunbartonshire Health & Social Care Partnership Board does not itself hold open data sets and their metadata (as these are held by the Council and the Health Board) performance information is routinely published: [1]( "

This takes us, inter alia, to [this report]( which is jammed with performance data that would be really useful as open data, were it not bound up in tables and charts in a PDF!
