NHS Grampian Funding Boost Welcomed by Stevenson

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, has welcomed the recent announcement that NHS Grampian will receive £773.3 million from the Scottish Government in 2014/15, which represents a four per cent increase in funding for the next financial year.

In total, Scotland’s 14 regional health boards will benefit from a £248 million increase in funds for 2014/15, which equates to a 3.1 per cent boost.

Mr Stevenson said:

“This funding boost to one of our most valued institutions demonstrates how highly the NHS is valued by the Scottish Government.

“The work that the NHS does to look after the health of people in Scotland is critically important, and it is vital that it is resourced as well as it can be.

“This is a significant cash boost in real terms – it is above inflation and demonstrates a commitment to the incredible work of the NHS in coming months.”

The figures show that between 2007 when the SNP took office and 2015/16, an extra £2.1 billion will have been invested in NHS Scotland’s resource budget.
