Within its Infrastructure Investment Plan, the Scottish government announced a plan to invest £110 million on digital public services and £25 million on digital healthcare over the next 5 years. This digital service investment, which is part of £33 billion in overall funding on digital public services, aims at improving local services, schools, and healthcare and supporting 45,000 jobs across Scotland. While the newly announced funding does not specify individual services, it refers to investing in digital inclusion, reducing the need to travel, and supporting safe active travel and local public services.
