The first £26.7 million of the £850 million has been allocated across all territorial NHS Boards and the Golden Jubilee National Hospital in 2018-19. This funding is being used to increase workforce, purchase new equipment, put on additional clinics in the evenings and weekends and additional theatres. Subsequent funding will be allocated on specific proposals to increase capacity as outlined in the waiting times improvement plan.
