In the Emergency Budget Review, the Scottish Government states it is reprioritising £116m from COVID-19 spending, specifically "A range of actions relating to COVID expenditure on vaccinations, test and protect, PPE and additional capacity to drive down additional costs."
Please set out exactly what actions are being taken and the specific saving/monetary value associated with each action.
Reduced prevalence and hospitalisation rates resulted in an easing of the previous infection and prevention control measures which has, in turn, contributed to a reduction in expenditure levels.
The following table presents the range of actions relating to vaccinations, test and protect, PPE and additional capacity to drive down COVID-19 costs.
|COVID spend category||Actions to reduce COVID-19 expenditure||Savings £M|
