Resource Allocation - Latest

2018/19, 2019/20 and 2020/21 Allocations

The Resource Allocation formula (NRAC) has been used to calculate target shares for the financial year 2020/2021. Shares for 2018/19, 2019/20, calculated last year, are also shown.These target shares are used by the Scottish Government to inform the allocation of NHS Revenue Budget between the 14 territorial NHS Boards in Scotland.

These allocations incorporate the results of the review of the Morbidity and Life Circumstances adjustment for the Acute care programme, which was completed in August 2016.

Please note that the final shares actually allocated to the Boards are different from the target shares calculated by the formula. The policy of the Scottish Government Health Directorate (SGHD) is to phase in the Formula by way of 'differential growth' whereby all Boards would continue to enjoy real-terms growth in their allocations year-on-year, with those above parity (i.e. above their formula target share) receiving less growth than those below parity until the new distribution was achieved.

The outputs from this analysis can be obtained using the links below.
