Delivery Plan

Every year, we set out what we are going to work on for the year ahead in our annual delivery plan. This incorporates

  • what is required from us by Scottish Government through NHS Local Delivery Plan guidance
  • our Annual Review action plan
  • our financial plan
  • our workforce plan
  • our property assets management strategy. 

Our Delivery Plan sets out our commitments for 2017/18. This includes our pledge to contribute to the Scottish Government Fairer Scotland Action Plan in its ambition to end child poverty in Scotland. We will also work in partnership with other NHS Boards to develop national referral pathways between NHS services and local advice services to maximise income and reduce fuel poverty.

Our delivery commitments are aligned with the five strategic priorities set out in our Strategic Framework for Action 2017-2022. These are based on evidence of what will work to improve health and reduce health inequalities. These are supported by three change priorities, which set out our commitments to how we will drive continuous improvement in the way we deliver our priorities. It also sets out how we will secure a focus on fairer health improvement in the new public health landscape.

Our delivery plans are developed in the context of our Management Statement, which sets out the broad framework within which we will operate.
