Date lodged: 7 December 2018

To ask the Scottish Government when it last discussed a medium-term financial plan with NHS Tayside.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 18 December 2018

All NHS boards submit financial plans to the Scottish Government each year and report throughout the year on performance against plan. The latest position for each Board is available on the Scottish Government’s website at the following location: https://www.gov.scot/publications/nhsscotland-and-integration-authorities-consolidated-financial-reporting-2018-2019/

NHS Tayside expects to submit a draft three-year plan to be formally considered for approval by the Board in February 2019. The plan will be discussed with the Scottish Government ahead of this.

The Scottish Government continues to provide tailored support to NHS Tayside to help the Board work towards a balanced and sustainable financial position, whilst ensuring that there is no impact on patient care.
