NHS FIFE GIVEN £11.8 MILLION IN EXTRA COVID FUNDING

Published date : 05 Jul 2021

NHS FIFE has been given £11.8m in extra COVID-19 funding from the Scottish Government as part of a £380million package allocated to health boards across Scotland.

 

This comes on top of the £1.7 billion already provided to health boards and Health and Social Care Partnerships last year.

 

The additional funding includes ongoing support for the vaccination programme, the Test and Protect system, and personal protective equipment for health and care workers.

 

Commenting, Mid Fife and Glenrothes MSP Jenny Gilruth said:

 

“NHS Fife has been under incredible pressure during the pandemic, not only will this additional funding support the health board with its efforts to treat patients but it will also play a role in supporting our NHS in its remobilisation programme as we come out of the pandemic.

 

“It is essential that our health services can be on a sure footing as we re-emerge from the pandemic and other services that have been disrupted can restart smoothly.

 

“This is a demonstration again that the only party in Scotland that can protect Scotland’s NHS is the SNP.”
