To ask the Scottish Government, in light of the NHS spending proposals in the Budget (Scotland) (No.4) Bill, whether NHS Grampian will receive its full share of funding as specified by the NRAC (NHS Scotland Resource Allocation Committee) formula in (a) 2020-21, (b) 2021-22 and (c) 2022-23.
Current status: Answered by Humza Yousaf on 20 December 2021
The Scottish Budget provides additional funding of £387 million for frontline NHS Boards in 2022-23 and continues to ensure that no Board is further than 0.8% from its target funding allocation.
In 2022-23, NHS Grampian will receive additional investment of £26.7 million, and this will take the Board’s overall funding in excess of £1 billion for the third consecutive year. Since 2015-16, NHS Grampian has received additional funding of £56 million specifically to support the Board's movement towards NRAC parity.
