NHS Boards are required to operate within their Revenue Resource Limit (RRL), their Capital Resource Limit (CRL) and meet their Cash Requirement.
Current national performance
Following the provision of brokerage to three Territorial Boards, all NHS Boards met their 2017-18 financial targets. Brokerage was provided in line with our overriding priority to protect patient care and services and was within the planned level of tolerance for the overall Health portfolio.
About this LDP standard
NHS Boards have an obligation to operate within their allocated funds and ensure value for money.
Performance against target
Scottish Government monitors NHS Board financial performance through monthly Financial Performance Returns (FPR).
