Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) is an agency of the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) and provides the supporting administration for the Judiciary across England and Wales. It delivers services to the public directly in court and tribunal buildings, remotely via business centres and increasingly via digital services online.
HMCTS has a once in a generation opportunity to transform the entire Courts and Tribunals Service through the HMCTS Reform and Crime Programme, with funding confirmed in the most recent spending review. These Programmes are providing a world-class justice system, in a manner that provides an improved user experience at reduced cost to the taxpayer. This will ensure justice for all as well as supporting the UK’s position at the forefront of an increasingly competitive international legal market. Delivering and operating digital services lie at the heart of the transformation.
Making a real difference to people’s lives is such an integral part of working at HMCTS that we’ve built it into an agreement with everyone who works here. It’s called our people promise. Please click here to find out more.
Digital & Technology Services is growing as a key enabler of HMCTS’ future as a digital organisation, building the new digital products and live operations teams necessary to deliver online services to our users and staff. The directorate is creating, operating and enhancing critical national infrastructure services. Users include citizens, court staff, the judiciary, prosecutors, legal counsel and a wide variety of other participants in delivering justice. For example, HMCTS Digital & Technology Services has created and now operates and enhances services that have digitised the court room. These include paperless bundles for all parties in the Crown Court, a single evidence repository and tablet viewing solution in the Magistrates’ Court, as well as the critical infrastructure solutions to display evidence, deliver court hearings by video and achieve connectivity.
