NHS build­ings need in­vest­ment

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

A new re­port has re­vealed the con­di­tion of Scot­land’s NHS as­sets in­clud­ing build­ings, ve­hi­cles and equip­ment across the coun­try in 2017.

The State of the Es­tate study found one of Scot­land’s health boards has just a quar­ter of its build­ings in a good phys­i­cal con­di­tion, while in an­other area al­most one in 10 prop­er­ties have been ranked as “un­sat­is­fac­tory”.

Some 3 per cent of health board build­ings re­quire ei­ther ma­jor in­vest­ment or re­place­ment and 25 per cent need a cash in­jec­tion.
