To ask the Scottish Government how much of the health budget in 2019-20 will be spent on prevention of and self-help for respiratory disease.
Answered by: Jeane Freeman 27 February 2019
The Scottish Government provides baseline funding to NHS Boards, which Boards use to best meet the healthcare needs of their resident population. Funding is not ring-fenced for prevention of and self-help for respiratory disease. It is not therefore possible to provide this proportion of the 2019-20 budget.
