To ask the Scottish Government when it will publish an NHS capital investment strategy.
Answered by: Jeane Freeman 27 February 2019
The Scottish Government recognises the importance of effective asset management and investment planning to ensure that the health and care estate and supporting services are fit for purpose and capable of adapting to and encouraging new models of care delivery.
Our Capital Investment Strategy (CIS) will be brought to Parliament before the end of the financial year. The CIS will take a broad overview of required investment across primary and community care facilities, acute hospital infrastructure, digital technology, and medical equipment and will set out the further steps we will take to support all boards to continue to improve and maintain their estate and asset base.
