To ask the Scottish Government what steps it is taking to expedite the physical survey of reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete within the NHS.


Health Boards are responsible for managing the NHS estate and the issues with RAAC were communicated to them by Health Facilities Scotland at least as early as November 2019. A national survey programme was established to provide additional assurance that all instances of RAAC in the NHS estate are known, that the condition of the RAAC has been properly assessed and that appropriate management plans are in place. The Scottish Government will support Health Boards through this process.
