Any Ideas On How We Can Save Money?

Any Ideas On How We Can Save Money?

Like most NHS Boards across Scotland, we are looking at ways to reduce costs and deliver our services more efficiently. This year we need to find savings of £24 million to meet our financial targets for the year ahead. That’s around 5% of our annual budget.

Work is already under way to look at ways of reducing costs across the organisation as a whole, but this is at an early stage. We also undertake a continual review of prescribing costs, supplies and use of bank and agency staff.

However, we know that some of the best savings ideas and suggestions come from you, our staff, and are asking you to share your thoughts on what could help save money or reduce costs. Suggestions received will be shared with the Area Partnership Forum and local directorates.

If you do have a brainwave, please let us know through a short online submission form on the staff intranet. You don’t need to submit your name or your email address.
