Annex B: Review of NHSScotland's Vehicle Assets

Analysis of vehicle assets is based on annual pro-forma information returned by each NHS Board. NHSScotland's vehicle assets comprise of approximately 10,000 vehicles, the majority of which are staff car scheme vehicles (55%) and operational cars (17%). The chart below provides a breakdown of NHSScotland's vehicle assets by type.

The vehicle age profile for all NHS Boards is shown in the charts that follow and shows that circa 85% of the vehicles are less than five years old. This represents a reasonable age profile for this asset group and indicates that investment is currently maintaining a reasonable standard of vehicle asset provision.
