Due to changes made to the official Scottish Parliament, our parser that used to fetch their web pages and convert them into more structured information has stopped working. We’re afraid we cannot give a timescale as to when we will be able to cover the Scottish Parliament again. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

In 2010-11 the initial recurring baseline formula allocation for NHS Tayside was £592.9 million. As usually occurs, some recurrent adjustments were required to be made to this baseline allocation throughout the year.

The most notable adjustment in 2010-11 was that the initial allocation for 2010-11 included funding for cost of capital. This was subsequently stripped out, as per HM Treasury guidance, boards no longer have to factor in a cost of capital charge (therefore there is no impact on boards not getting funding cover for this area). This decreased boards’ allocation by £12 million and when factoring in some other less significant adjustments, the restated baseline allocation totalled £580.9 million. When using the restated baseline allocation of £580.9 in 2010-11, the uplift is close to 3%.

In 2011-12 the initial recurring baseline formula allocation for NHS Tayside was £596.4 million. This represents a 2.9% increase on 2010-11 restated baseline figure.
