NHS Grampian will receive £950,000 to help reduce hospital attendances by managing care closer to home for those with long-term conditions and minor injuries.
Health Secretary Jeane Freeman said: “Our £10m investment will support boards as well as health and social care to put appropriate steps in place – particularly to make sure people are discharged in a timely way when it’s safe to do so and that the right staff are in place throughout the system.”
