Scottish Health and Social Care Open Data

The Scottish Health and Social Care Open Data platform gives access to statistics and reference data for information and re-use.

This platform is managed by Public Health Scotland. Data is released under the Open Government Licence.


Since March 2020, it has been necessary to reschedule a number of PHS publications due to workforce reprioritisation in order to support our response to the COVID-19 outbreak. This will affect the release of open data from these publications.

Details of the affected publications are available from our list of forthcoming publications and further information on COVID-19 and the production of statistics can be found on the PHS Data and Intelligence website.

From 1st April the NHS Scotland Open Data platform is maintained by Public Health Scotland. From this point the platform has been renamed Scottish Health and Social Care Open Data portal.

On this date column names for the following geography levels have been updated:

HB2014 changing to HB
