This programme is now available to view on egovtv.tv, the online television channel for public service modernisation. It reviews the way the Government Secure Intranet is enabling central and local government to share restricted information and applications securely and deliver new services.This video case study focuses on how Renfrewshire Council, other Scottish local authorities and Scotland’s General Register Office are benefiting from GSX which allows them to share birth, marriage and death information, securely, and in real-time. It also explores how Renfrewshire Council is taking advantage of connecting with GSX to develop new services and shared facilities with neighbouring authorities and introduces Government Connect as the new, easier to adopt GSI service for local authorities.
