Foreword

This sixth edition of the State of NHSScotland Assets and Facilities Report ( SAFR) is now widely recognised as a key reference document used to inform decisions on the continuing investment in assets and facilities services to deliver the Scottish Government's "2020 Vision" for sustainable high quality in health. Getting the right assets and facilities services in place will be central to achieving the "2020 Vision" and supporting delivery of the new National Clinical Strategy for Scotland. Both are anticipated to require major change to the type and distribution of assets and facilities services and the way in which we prioritise investment in the future.

This year's report is an interim asset performance update report based on a new two year programme which alternates between a performance update report (this year), and a full report (next year) covering progress with all asset and facilities management issues and initiatives across NHSScotland.

This year's report thus focuses on monitoring and comparing year on year performance on a comprehensive basis across the totality of NHSScotland's assets and facilities services, and presents a detailed and rigorous scrutiny of asset performance. It also provides a range of information that should help Boards target limited resources on achieving maximum benefit and value for money from investment.

As in previous years, Boards have been highly supportive in recognising the importance of this report, and their willingness to provide information to support the detailed scrutiny of performance that underpins the report is to be commended.
