To ask the Scottish Government what funds it is making available to NHS boards for 2018-19.


Answered by Shona Robison (22/02/2018):

The Health portfolio resource budget will increase by over
£400 million in 2018-19 to £13.1 billion, a 3.4% uplift.  

As part of this uplift, our frontline NHS Boards will receive £354.5 million (3.7%) of direct additional funding in 2018-19, of which £179.5 million for a general allocation uplift and a further £175 million increase for investment in reform.

This investment will support our commitment that more than half of frontline spending will be in community health services by the end of this Parliament, and will allow us in 2018-19 to continue our progress in seeing the shift towards this balance of spending. In 2018-19 it will also support a further shift in the share of the frontline NHS budget dedicated to mental health and to primary, community, and social care.

Details of Boards’ revenue resource and capital allocations for 2018-19 are as follows:

In addition to the capital allocations above, a further £209 million held centrally will be used to support infrastructure investment across the sector. This will ensure continued support from the capital investment strategy to support the delivery of the National Clinical Strategy and the Delivery Plan. This also includes funding to progress our £200 million commitment to expand the Golden Jubilee Hospital and develop five elective care centres in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Inverness and Livingston.
