The Future of NHS Highland Funding to Third Sector Groups Under Review

30th January 2020

As some of you might be aware the level and extent of funding by NHS Highland to third sector organisations has been under review for quite some time.

In a couple of weeks David Park the chief officer of NHSH is coming up to Caithness to have a short meeting with some of the current organisations who do receive funding and hopefully explain how the review is going. Whilst this is not an open meeting I will hopefully have the opportunity to ask some questions. If any group who might want to carry out work for the NHS locally in the future have any questions then just e-mail them to me at allan@cvg.org.uk and I will see if we can get some answers! Let me know by the 13th of February 2020 if you want anything raised.

Thanks

Allan Tait
Senior Development Officer
