NHS Highland told to save £100 million

THE NHS Highland board was told on Tuesday that it has to make ‘unprecedented’ reduction in costs of around £100 million over the next three years.

During the board meeting, finance director Nick Kenton said that a ‘more of the same approach’ is not going to be sustainable and, therefore, that the current model of care that NHS Highland delivers needs to be changed, and it needs to change urgently.

Both NHS Highland chief executive Elaine Mead and employee director Adam Palmer said that NHS Highland staff and management will have to work hand-in-hand together to help transform healthcare delivery to ensure it is ‘fit for purpose’ in the future.
