This shows that the Scottish Government has delivered its commitment made in 2010-11 to pass on health resource consequentials in full, with further investment over and above consequentials made by the Scottish Government in 2015-16.

Figures prior to the period outlined above are not available on a basis which is directly comparable between the Department of Health and the Scottish Government health portfolio. An example of this is the inclusion of spending on adult social care within figures for the Department of Health.
